In this dark landscape we see the back side of an old wood farmhouse with one small window below the eaves. Five forlorn fence posts hover together at the edge of the building. A dirt road curves past the fence posts and down towards another building whose roof is visible on the right. Behind and to the left of the farmhouse is a wood shed or barn, its door gaping open. Five more fence posts stretch away from the edge of the barn. The entirety is cast in shadow or darkness, save the horizon. This is the "Lyme Farm" at either dawn or dusk. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
