Footprints In The Sand
Along the coast to the East of our nation,
A recent discovery caused much celebration.
For thousand of years, they lay undiscovered –
But, by winds and by rain, they became uncovered.
Stretching far off across the low land,
Were dozens of footprints in the sand.
Footprints of both man and child –
From way back when our land was wild.
Searching the sands for plants and shellfish,
They looked for delicacies to make a nice dish.
It was a time when mammoths roamed nearby,
And creatures emitted such fearsome cries.
Archaeologists were more than thrilled.
When come low tide, the prints were revealed,
Further evidence, the experts are hoping to find,
But at least these footprints were left behind.
From these impressions seen in the silt,
A picture of early man can continue to be built.
