The old stone wall


Nobody knows when the old stone wall was built. Some say “It’s over 150 years old. It’s always been there.” It’s not very high only about 2 feet most people step over it. It’s easy to sit on, but difficult to get back up.

In appearance it’s just weathered the old stone probably Granite. But it is well constructed not an opening between the stones. They all still fit tight, not a loose stone as so many of these old walls have.

“What good is it?”. It’s too low to sit on and be comfortably and it’s not high enough to keep anything from crossing other than small dogs. It was here before the concrete sidewalks were made. and there’s only grass and weeds on the other side. The wall has been a fixture in the old village hardly anyone notices it.

But in the autumn breezes its biggest purpose is to collect dried leaves on the sidewalk. The local children of all ages take great delight walking in them and seeing how high they can kick the leaves.
