The Stone Sofa

We were walking through the grounds of the old country manor. It was autumn and the orange leaves rustled beneath our feet. Deep in the undergrowth, we stumbled across an unusual monument, a stone sofa! We wondered how this came to be here, surrounded by trees and fallen leaves and who built it many years ago. It must have been someone who liked cats as there was a stone cat sleeping peacefully on the sofa. Now, this grand monument is uncared for, weathered by the elements, the grey stones cracked and fading. Even the dogs left mess beside it! Maybe one day it will be brought back to it’s former glory.
