Steel Boundaries

the feel of cold steel
set out in the open
for what was once so hot
is now dead metal

tinged with flaked rust
from the weather
strong as before
ever standing

against the elements
longer than me
vegetation growing
swamping the steel

twisting round each bar
as it takes over
hiding boundaries
from the future

each pointed piece
poking through leaves
black against the green
soon to disappear!

crafted on a forge
shaped on an anvil
metal creation
stand the test of time!
