. Shishaldin Radiant angel, bathed in light, Gleaming opalescent white _On the smooth, sheer snow Clothing your smooth symmetry-- Smooth cone, sculpted gracefully _Like no peak I know--- Rising from the icy sea, Rising high, majestically _Piercing through the blue; Rising to the diamond sun, Your light’s source, the only one _Shining over you. But beneath your glowing face Hidden deep in icy grace __Burns a heart of fire, When it flares you quake and swell, Unleash its magmatic hell, __Belch it from your spire. Though your summit pierces shrouds Of sea-fog to kiss the clouds, __Earthbound you remain--- Spanning, joining earth and sky, Hell and Heaven, low and high, __Rising through each plane. . .
