Footprints of the Ancients


For some time since the last of the ancients left a footprint
The dust of the Earth that rose from that step may have never touched back down
Being carried by the wind, the wings, or on the backs of beasts both great and small
Never again to grace the soil from which it sprung
All of those bygone days ago
A simple, single particle
To never again rest upon the land, or sink into the sea
