  We are looking for race tracks in large and small
in flint ax after harrow
in bog findings jewelry, coarse and crude,
in the church stones, placed by broad hands.
Each moldy paper, each stained altar book,
've saved a grain of family pain and distress;
now they must show me which way I went
and promise me a glimpse of life's mystery.
