Mountains are sort of heroic and mysterious.

Noah's Ark landed on one.
He must have screamed to God from there,
knowing that even if hell froze over he couldn't get down.
"I am not Moses, I cannot part the seas!"

Snow likes it up there too.
There's a thrill to lacking oxygen,
almost freezing to death
and loosing limbs-
just to get that little ol' flag up there.
It's real cool though, for some reason.

Sometimes its hot up there.
Eagles live there, maybe that's why their bald.
Aliens are known for hiding in caves.
The poor birds; their almost extinct.
I've only seen them at Campusette Park.

I, too, want to scream from the top of a Mountain,
and fall beneath the weight of an avalanche.

You've managed to put some excitement into your poem. It's made it so different and so "cool".
