Stately Stones


 

these old stone walls go on for miles on end

all gathered from the breast of stubborn soil

then winter frost doth make stones rise again

 

then laid up line on line – long walls of toil

demarking what is yours from what is mine

all gathered from the breast of stubborn soil

 

made comely both by moss and crawling vine

these stately stones the paeans of poet’s pens

demarking what is yours from what is mine

 

I love to sit upon them now and then

in silence hear the wind and nature’s song

these stately stones the paeans of poet’s pens

 

these walls, the hem, to patchwork fields belong

“good fences make good neighbors” quoth Robert Frost

in silence hear the wind and nature’s song

 

the wisdom of his words on none is lost

of old stone walls that go for miles on end

“good fences make good neighbors” quoth Robert Frost

a diff’rent frost doth make stones rise again
