The Earth turned slowly, calm, serene.
Waters covered the land.
Teeming with life, precious green,
Oceans silently spanned.
Each minute being lived its lot,
Then, dying, slowly sank.
A rain of bones gently caught,
In the vast deep dark dank.
Decades passed, and decades more.
Life from the shallows was torn.
Growing deeper on the ocean floor,
A strange transformation was born.
Countless creatures gave their all,
Till mighty hills had grown.
Bodies ordained by Earth to fall,
Transformed to sturdy stone.
