Ode to Sandstone

People love their granites

And marble countertops

They ooh and ah right over

The pretty coloured rocks.

Volcanic formations

Get more than they deserve

They’re hard and they tessalate

It’s more than I can bear.

It’s the humble sandstone

With layers of darker sand

That capture my attention

Sedimentary I stand.

This rock is soft and erodes

Quite easily you see

But the bedding planes and contours

Always inspire me.

The colours are more earthy

Muted and clear to see

I love the humble sandstone

Not the sparkly.
