Mike's Mountain

From the top of this mountain you can see
Many fine views of Marin County
At the top on a sun shinny day
The air softly warm whispers as if to say
Welcome to you -- enjoy the view
The ocean to the west and to the east the bay
A place to sit on a warm stone
And think through your thoughts alone
Or walk in the wild grass
And let your troubles pass
It can be a wonderful place to share
It all has to do with being there
