“No longer is your bloody crop of sons required to heave and lift.
They grew strong in the rich soil,.
where the myth of their fathers pushed
hard in the muddy salient and now lie cold
alone in that rich dark earth”. - AndrewJGault

Who planted these great veteran beech trees? They are not native so who decided to line this little road. When they were planted there was no electricity, no radio, no penicillin, no atomic power, no vaccination.
I walk past them, under them and imagine the people who planted them as I walk on the mast.
