  1. I tower over the man-made plain;
    My peaks scrape the heavens.
    I have many brothers; in fact,
    We may be as many as a hundred and seven.

    We're as ancient as the oldest trees,
    But not older than the hills.
    We've been studied for centuries now,
    But with mystery we're still filled.

  4. I am small as an ant and big as a whale,
    I can soar through the air like a bird with a tail.

    I follow whoever controls me by the sun,
    but I fade away when dark fell like a ton.
