Penn Yan.

 Acoustic shadows litter the wind-- Silences collapsing into
silences-- Around the sound of our laughter, So near here in the winter
fields, Mist softening the distant trees,
 We step back away from the car-- Heads bowed to the sun, our hands
Stretch and plunge deep below The snow and furrowed soil in A race
across the Amish land--
Twisting and knotting and weaving Our arms together in every direction
Beneath the earth--now it is only Natural for us to burst out of our
Shoes and clothes and live like this.
