Chemical Elements Poems 26: Village Quarry, Baltic Isle

Village quarry,
Baltic isle.
In the form of a black rock,
fate visits.

Mother lode in
discarded slag;
another's treasure.
Chemists delight
in discovery's glow, 
before the period.

Four elements named
for the village, 
another three
with roots in the 
same ground.
Rare earth, indeed.
