Artifact Facts - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

AN artifact by accident, design,
Time's spared though so few items grace fate's trace,
Identified with culture, usage, race,
Questions answers, knowledge may refine.
Unsuspected causal links some mine,
In others tantalizing glimpse of space
That for a passing phase held pride of place
In heart or mind before Time signed end line.
Each object linking to submergent past
Seems dream incarnate, lasts while most fail fast.
