18/100 - Lark song spatters a hundred gravestones

The wonder of it, the wonder
Turning a skull with his spade
Lark song spatters a hundred gravestones.

In at the gate come seven men
And one is wound in the long silence.

[Gravedigger from Easter in an island, George Mackay Brown, Following a lark]
