The piece is based off a poem titled Four Miles from Ear Mountain by A.B Guthrie in 1986.
Four Miles from Ear Mountain
Ear Mountain stands four miles away,
crow-flight, from our house.
No day passes but I gaze on it
as my father did when I was young.
I see him looking out the window west,
his eyes fixed and his body still.
Restive, he found peace there perhaps.
or in it some continuation of himself,
some promise of foreverness.
I did not know his thoughts,
Nor am I clear about my own
as its lift invites my eye,
and somehow I am part of it,
a mortal partner to eternity.
