She had spent her whole life climbing the same mountain.
(On the other side, she was told,
unparalleled happiness
awaited her with
outstretched arms.)
But her thighs burned and with each step
her sighs gained weight
so she sat on the grass,
feeling the cool blades for the very first time
splashing against her thighs
like a rush of water
and soaked in the midsummer sun as she had a picnic
