Interesting stuff Mr t and RE!

The poem’s here if anyone’s interested (bottom of the page) along with a pic of the stone by Gerald Ponting. Gerald comments that, " I was at Max Gate recently, the house on the outskirts of Dorchester where Hardy lived much of his later life. There are two sarsens which Hardy had set up in the garden, not in original situ, but geophys studies when the nearby by-pass was created suggested that they had been part of a 'Neolithic enclosure'. The poem is... basically him imagining a shadow of his late wife."
