Scattered throughout former fields
Covered with new-growth trees…
Run stonewalls ancient and sullen
that serve few modern man needs.
Running through brambles and broken down,
Serving as models for new…
Custom-built walls near edges of towns
For the rich to view!
Only when property surveyors come,
Researching old property deeds…
Then these stone walls from another age
Find they can still meet needs!
NOTE: a lot of these walls run through woods in my area!
