The Millpond At Wollombi

Where moss grows long on the fence post

and lichen spreads across the headstone

the black stalks of dead saplings reach up

and raindrops spread circle over circle

across the hill, home and sky

where only the mill’s name remains

of many forgotten things

and some without a name.
