  1. 21. Fossils

    • By Colin West
    • Published by Family Friend Poems September 2021 with permission of the Author.

    O, its bones may be colossal,
    But the trouble with a fossil
    Is that it doesn’t give a clue
    As to the creature’s actual hue.

    nor is it a magical key

    through a mountain

    The child knows best...
    A book's a story waiting to be read
    Taking one to where their feet never tread
    Be it fact or fiction whatever's told
    It's a mystery about to unfold.

    And see different lands, one by one.
