Caught in a moment

by time in a rock

To this creature of the deep

it must be a shock

The old sea snail rests

by the sands of the bay

stoic and silent

with nothing to say

It’s given up swimming

in the waters of blue

nested in th’ rock face

with others there too

In its time our dear seasnail

had plenty to say

but its not with its cousins

in the water of the bay

Its encased in the stone

on the shore (known as lime)

that built up in th’past

(or prehistoric time)

But the children on the shore

to the sand dunes they flock

to see sea-snail resting

in its home in the rock
