The idea of the cloth prompts me to think of where it’s torn – as in where there are intrusive buildings. Farm buildings used to sit comfortably in their surroundings, built from local stone or brick. Metal barns don’t fit in quite the same way! Not the farmer’s fault – who could afford to build a stone barn? But they are still an eyesore.
Here and there this garment’s torn
Punctured by prefabricated sheds and barn
…or something like that.
