Melting icebergs

By Christa Layr

When icebergs melt they might unveil a feather
that after aeons finally sheds light
on the question if the birds or whether
already reptiles used the feather for a flight.

Hidden in ice we might discover treasures
about the climate in the years that passed.
And with the knowledge of today and finer measure
we also tell the time developments did last.

When icebergs tumble roaring in the ocean
thereby reducing salt in concentration,
they give then rise to yet a different notion
of global currents in the earth’s rotation.
