Limestone is a funny rock,
Itís hard, and rough, and green.
But years of pressure on this stone,
Make changes most supreme.

Marble appears, quite rough to touch,
But cut and polished bare.
It then becomes most beautiful,
Of all the rocks out there.

Engravers, then they set to work,
Most skilful at their art.
And make this stone a record,
Of the best we hold to heart.

On plaques and gravestones memories keep,
For all who come to see.
This noble stone will carry forth,
Mankinds long family tree.
