A Tale for the Future

Garnering evidence

of biological microscopic life

digging deep into the water

below the rocks with a knife

A few fossils

beneath the moss

a vista of materials

very little is lost

Fossils telling a story

of a long time ago

when the river was running

and the cliff was low

A natural wonder

of the river carving the land

providing space for new life

on the rocks and the sand

Going from the past to the future

river still carves

homes for other creatures

none will starve

In a millenia

research will point the way

when a curious observer

finds relics of today

A fascinating tale

will be told

of how we lived

in the days of old

Leaving the river clean

free of debris

the observer will tell

of when nature was free
