The poem “Mountain Graveyard” is a very different type of poem. The poem only has twelve words in it. At first sight the poem doesn’t seem to make much sense. If you look closely at the poem you will see that the words on each line use the same letters in a different order. The words on each line are related and even give you a visual when you read them. The most amazing thing about the poem is the way each line completes a perfect thought. Each set of words describes something related to a graveyard and its surroundings.
