Forever Amber - Poem by David Whalen


A Scorpion entombed in Amber
Life frozen in the passage of time
Eyes fixed in cold gaze
As if enraged and amazed
At a fate so unforgiving
...So unkind...

It’s body will never know
Ruin or rot
Never again feel
The heat or the cold
Nor will it suffer
A fate even tougher
To ne’er know what it’s like
…To grow old…
