Inspiration in Architecture
Beautiful stone barn with wooden loft | 'Threshed corn lay piled like grit of ivory, Or solid as cement in two-lugged sacks. The musky dark boarded an armoury, Of farmyard implements, harness, plough-socks. The floor was mouse-grey, smooth, chilly concrete. There were no windows, just two narrow shafts, Of gilded motes, crossing, from air-holes slit High in each gable...'~Thomas Heaney, from 'The Barn'
