Sedimentary stones

are the keepers of bones; the sands

and clays form timely bands

connecting life and lands. Add heat

to pressure; when complete,

a metamorphic feat is found.

Magma cools underground

or erupts from a mound to make

igneous rocks. We take

samples, measure earthquakes, explore

what the earth has in store—

we geologists core unknowns!
