Faldum

All this disturbed him not at all. But something else did begin to worry him. The ages had slipped by and, behold, the mountain had grown old. When he saw the sun rise and move across the sky and depart, it was not the way it had once been, and when he saw the stars reflected in the pale glaciers he no longer felt himself their equal.
