On the horizon the peaks assembled;
And as I looked,
The march of the mountains began.
As they marched, they sang,
“Aye! We come! We come!”

    The God of Wrath and the God of indifference often appear in images of hostile or stolidly impassive mountains. These angry mountains appear as an army of vengence against a deffiant little man. It seems although Crane is an atheist he still wrote about the reoccuring theme of God and his wrath. Crane questions whether man is alone in the universe without god or he would write about God’s mighty wrath symbolizing as mountains.
