Sandy Plains

High and dry you divide the waters flowing to ether side.
Indian trails once marked your ridge, now car on icy roads slide.

Indian signs along the way, now hide in bank parking lots.
Your villages are all gone, replaced by strip malls and cemetery plots.

Where is your sand and what happen to your plains?
Was it so much different when you got your name?

From Marietta to Mountain Park few hills we need to climb,
it would be great to be able to travel back in time.

Quote from "The State Of The Art" paper by Johannes H.N. Loubser, Tony G. Greiner and Tommy Hudson: What we can say about the petroglyphs in the State at this stage of our work is that these rock markings are certainly not the mindless graffiti of idle Indians.

There are four known rock petroglyphs in the state of Georgia
Track Rock, Shoal Creek, Reinhardt Rock and the Sprayberry Rock.
