The song above inspired the poem below:

There was a mountain
They tried to climb,
But a boulder blocked
Their ascent.
There was a valley they
Tried to traverse,
But they became lost
In its low fields.
There was a river
They tried to swim,
But it was just too wide.
They swam, side-by-side,
Until their arms tired,
And the current
Took them both under.
