Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Go for the Gold?

This anonymously written poem is sent out to Fab Grandma, and anyone else who...

Collecting Rocks

I think there shall never be
An ignoramus quite like me,
Who roams the hills throughout the day
To pick up rocks that do not pay;
For there’s one thing, I’ve been told:
I take the rocks and leave the gold.
O’er deserts wild or mountains blue
I search for rocks of varied hue.
A hundred pounds or more I pack,
With blistered feet and aching back.
And after this is said and done,
I cannot name a single one.
I pick up rocks where’er I go,
The reason why I do not know,
For rocks are found by fools like me
Where nature intended them to be.

This truly fits me, except I can name many of them.

let's see: that is quartz, the over there is quartz, and the other one is quartz. and they preety black one, I dunno.

My "gold" is the beautiful day, the beautiful scenery, and the beautiful people in my life. The other stuff? just dirt. shiney dirt.

I like the poem and I have absolutely no doubt that you know the name of almost all of them.

This could be me... but not with rocks. Not usually at least.

Amen. I could be the Dr. Doolittle of Rocks - I talk to them and they talk right back. When I buy a backpack - has to be heavy duty for all the "souvenirs" I bring back from hikes here and there. This poem is "so" me.

That's a great poem. I too am a big fan of picking up rocks wherever I go. - Margy

I don't take rocks from the national forest where I walk, however I do have a big problem with collecting too much quilting fabric from yard sales and thrift stores.
