Amid the Beams and Rust of Days Gone By We Find many Another Man's Sunrise

“Were there scenes of disaster?

Ledges cracking loose from a high hanging wall,

heavy jagged rocks careening down through many levels of mined-out vein stope, smashing the heavy timber beams from their wedge and filling the lives of miners with dust, desperation,and death?

No, they left a years ago today.

Tired dusty faces, worn out boots crunching down the exit road gravel.”
