In the Dusty Din of Time
  

In the dusty din of time
a mountain was a prairie fine
and oceans joined and rivers strained
then flowed into tall fields of grain

In this that has been so immense
itís hard to think of minutes spent
this rain that slants across my path
climactic change might take at last

Ďtil the ground is parched and dry
and carrion thrive as others die
and rationed precious is the brew
that now we pour without a clue

or thought to what will ere become
of that the bridge our life as strung
for we have trouble thinking more
then life beyond our own front door

In the dusty din of time
this land of ours will show the sign
and what was mountain might be stream
for change is part of life it seems

How could this lasting loving earth
be better for this thoughtful verse?



 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

An excellent question, Martie, one which can be asked of anything we do, I suppose. I can't speak for the earth but I ,personally, am better for sharing your words.

Great poem Martie!

Ah Martie...I often ask the same...

This is breathlessly wonderful - again. Your poems read so well it almost hurts.  

In the dusty din of time
this land of ours will show the sign
and what was mountain might be stream
for change is part of life it seems

Wow.
