  • Donated by Eric & Maureen Hall in memory of Patricia Culver
  • If on a winter's night a traveler -- Outside the town of Malbork -- Leaning from the steep slope -- Without fear of wind or vertigo -- Looks down in the gathering shadow -- In a network of lines that enlace -- In a network of lines that intersect -- On the carpet of leaves illuminated by the moon -- Around an empty grave -- What story down there awaits its end?
