Petrified Forest National Park...
Petrified, not scary, these rocks are all stone,
harder than anything, harder than bone;
they were growing taller many years ago,
now they've tumbled down, part of a show.
We are in the Painted Desert, it's grassland I'm told,
the grass may grow, but most of all, everything is old!
It's very dry here all the time, I don't think it has rain,
maybe so of us should live out here, it may help the pain.
