Forest Primeval

Forest Primeval, Acrylic painting by AVR 2000

In the deep bowels of the Earth
     The ancient sun lies buried deep,
Then modern man came with tools to tap
     The fossil long in its keep.

It came from forests ages ago,
     By chemistry of nature and time -
Eons to the end of the Sixth Day
     When God gave man wisdom in his prime.

But woe, wisdom took away his mild
     To mine the forest primeval
To run the wheel, to warm his home,
     To guard his own survival.
