The Lost Wood

The trees cover their former selves.
Heads clouded with dust,

feet on limestone, sinking.
The quarry mouth now silent.

The trees clasp the hill
against their diminishing selves.

Each winter the farmer reclaims
the land where we hid:

between roots, bared bones,
the harshness between worlds
