Boundary Walls

Originating in the ‘Iron-Age’, they stand
as living history; a testament
to the craftsmanship of men of yore

built by hand, each stone 
strategically placed one upon another
no mortar holds them, and yet
as our lands circulatory system
of boundaries
they’ve stood for centuries

arteries and veins of dry stone wall
flowing across the fields and hills
of the countryside  
that is synonymous of rural England.

    Janette, in Scotland you can go on courses to learn how to build these boundary walls, not as easy as people think they are too build. And there are plenty of run down ones, lovely poem>>James
