Travelling sustainably through the Alps

Man’s life

Majestic the gelid glacier,

in front of the helpless gaze of the frail larch,

every breath of life ices up.

The barren rocks torment 

the thin roots of the survivor.

The whipping winds torture

the knobby arms and the deciduous needles. 

Impassive the millenary peaks show themselves 

to the weary and troubled spirit.

 

Majestic the gelid glacier,

every breath of life ices up.
