What meaning flows from

a few lines written


in a book

on a single sheet of paper

on the back of a photograph

left under a brick loosed

from some country stairway

near some lazy stones

along an ancient walkway

on a sunshine cloudless day

where many footsteps pass

with the sound of birds

and a distant tone of bells

warning of sheep grazing

in some green grass field nearby

if no eyes come upon them there

if no hands touch to draw them close

before the rain?
