Cape Cod Massachusetts USA
Vast epochs cast as fossiled specks in time,
Striated tombs interred throughout the world
Lend touchstone sediments to advent's kind.
Thenceforth anon wends evolution's change;
As harbinger, the nascency of life,
Foretold of destinies fulfilled this day.
Lost relics note Paleozoic day.
Emergent firstlings from the womb of time,
Prelusive tenets of all earthly life,
Predate the Great Divides about this world.
Mute artefacts boast evidence of change;
That sapience upstood in rightly kind.
Caved scriveners carved etchings of first kind,
Scribed signatures of juvenescent day.
'Til Cheop's spire spake enigmatic change,
All messengers of pre-recorded time;
Colossal seemed as wonders of the world
Bore witness to the rudiments of life.
In Ancient East rose early factioned life.
Societies of City-States in kind,
Civilizations aimed to rule the world,
Grand Empires fallen remnants of lost day.
A Golden Age quelled Medieval time
And Renaissance of spirit enscribed change.
One metamorphic centenary change,
Transmutant of simplistic way of life.
Extensive progress unsurpassed in time,
Unfounded passage for all humankind.
The precipice of scientific day
Defines existence of a modern world.
Futurity rends visions for our world;
Endurance yet a quest subject to change.
What imminence befalls untrodden day,
As man espies intergalactic life?
A Universe alone 'tis naught mankind;
An Age is but a second lest mistime.
Temporal world yields pendency to life;
Millenniums' change plenary in kind.
Man's day a flicker in senescent time.
