"When everything that ticked has stopped,
And space stares, all around,
Or grisly frosts, first autumn morns,
Repeal the beating ground."

 Emily Dickinson, Time and Eternity, LXXV

Such an intriguing picture. I love moss, but I don't think I'd want to sit on this particular bench for fear of hurting the moss.

I recognized that poem at the first line. I have always loved Emily Dickinson. Thank you for the reminder. :-)

I'm so glad that we are keeping things that show their age with lichen, moss, and patina. I know styles come and go and "shiny and new" will come back around but allowing things to show their age and keep them is the best. I like to think that people have sat on that bench to rest, visit with friends or just daydream. Or maybe it's just been there to add interest to a garden. Whatever the reason, I'm glad it is still there.
