Stone walls still stand…

along the lane, overhung
with lemon leaves, lazily swung
like rope across the landscape.
At their rugged, naked feet,
mud is sun–baked and crumbling,
draped with dried-up weeds and grass,
where humans rarely pass,
only rain, wind and mice
that burrow, deep beneath the footing,
a tissue of tunnels and apertures
adorned with a glint of gossamer.
