BETWEEN TWO STONES

 BETWEEN TWO STONES

 

 Horses raced here

 Until the railway

 Cut the field in half

 Between two stones

 And a third

 No longer standing.

 

 The first excavation

 Proved this to be true

 From the clay pipes

 And wine bottles

 Now cleaned

 And catalogued.

 

 More recent surveys

 Using methods

 Geophysical

 Indicated the presence

 Of several Bronze Age

 And early Christian burials.

 

 Today we walk on ground

 Where tears were shed

 And wagers placed

 Between two stones

 And a third

 No longer standing.
