AIN'T ROCKHOUNDING GREAT!!!
© 2001 Terrell William "Terry" Proctor, J.D.
Igneous, Metamorphic & Sedimentary,
Three types of rocks, elementary!
Now the knowledge of the rock within,
That's next the place to begin.
When Rockhounds go out afield,
Enthusiasm is unconcealed.
Searching for treasures to unearth
Cannot but help, to fill one with mirth.
Mineral clubs are such great fun
If you don't belong, go join one.
Fees are small compared to the reward
I'll guarantee, you'll never be bored.
