The Changes of Time Mountains that once touched the sky Are no more to be seen; Rivers that once raged no longer roll. Thick, luxurient forests, That upon the earth had been, Have changed to sloping piles of shiny coal. Nations that once ruled the world Are now but history. Islands disappeared without a trace Left behind to shed light On the wonderous mystery Behind this planet's everchanging face. Think not then of eternity, At least upon this world, For the strongest rock will some day turn to sand, And all our haughty cities To a soggy chaos hurled When a greedy ocean gobbles up the land.
