Though hundreds of men have scaled up its back,
It forever retains it's pristine beauty and virginity !
Clad in its eternal mantle of pure whiteness,
Stands that lofty citadel of ice and snow,
A place where the very Gods dwell !
On reaching its summit up high,
It is not the peak we only conquer each time;
But we conquer ourselves !
Displaying indomitable will and human sprit,
To rise above all earthly fetters !
To aspire and to reach,
Where only the brave, the courageous, and the stout-hearted,
Do dare, and forever excel !
