WOMAN:  “Because it is in our path.”

CHILD:      “Will the climb be difficult?”

WOMAN:  “At times grassy and fair, at times icy and treacherous. We will only know as we go.”

CHILD:     “What is at the top?”

WOMAN:  “All we may know and clearly see, but only once all clouds are dispelled.”

CHILD:      “And what then?”

WOMAN:  “Then we may sing as we come down the other side and share what we have seen.”
