The water's edge reflects the sky;
Tree logs with half removed bark
Wade within the shallow drink.
Gray skies mingle with heavy fog.

Woman crossing barren plank
Meet children in waiting rowboat
Bringing packed lunch for later meal.

On the hillside slope children dance
In Limerick speech of ring-around-the-rosy
Near the cottage worn and whittled.

Horses geared with towing straps
Move the watered logs upon shore;
Men supervise the active course -
What more can they do in their frame mind?

The fog secretes distance shown
Where two towers meet, and bridge together;
The history shown in remarkable frame
Reflects the life of lives once lived
Causing my mind to wonder -
If this day we resemble the better or worse?
