CCC213: Sands of Time

When we lived closer to the land
And time was measured by a trickle of sand
Before they mined the coal
To pollute the air and use as fuel
Before that electrifying spark
That relieved the night of dark
Then wind was used to turn wheel and sail
Working with Nature, grim or hale


One of the many windmills that were used to move water from the swampy marshes into the rivers and out to sea, long since replaced by electric-powered pumps
