The feet of ghosts

I like this perspective on Shamrock Inn -- the feet of many people have passed this way.

Words to walk with:
From Sitting Room, Strezelecki Homestead by Ian Mudie
"When it was closed the sand crept in the windows,
leaned its shoulder against the glass,
crashed through, and trickled slowly in
upon the carpet (bought for a city bride)
until the pattern was hidden and the chairs
were set paddling in its sterile anonymity,
and muted were the sounds of the feet
of the ghosts who once laughed here."
