August: Madison County


Years I passed by
Always noticing
Your fine limestone foundation
The way you were built
Into the prairie hillside
The new tin roof added
To protect your hand hewn beams

Finally, August, 1987, I stopped
Long enough to take a picture
Knowing as the Madison County
Limestone began to crumble
You would someday be gone
Now I cannot say for certain
Just where you once stood
