     They get pelted by sleet and battered by rain, yet they stand. Year after year their hinges obey repeated commands, and they stand.  They shelter their occupants, some friends and some foe and they stand. They have earned their place in the landscape as trees and vines cling to their boards so they too might stand.  A few tears will fall when someone replaces the perfectly weathered boards with new trees, and new bricks, and new stones to make their mark, to make their stand.
