Charley's Garden, Collywell Bay
Charley's Garden, Collywell Bay
Name of an eroding sea-stack of Permian sandstone in Collywell Bay NZ3376 : Collywell Bay

"Each day in his eighties Charley took the precipitous walk to his vegetable patch. Straining like a wind blown craft his arch collapsed.

The last stack, land leans towards the East, tipping time tended to the rising sun. A final bow before the level venture of the waves."

From 'Charley’s Garden', a poem by Coghill (2009), on his blog, 'Clouds and Clocks': LinkExternal link
