The wooden columns of the Byre Theatre, St Andrews,
are like tree trunks holding the grove of the interior

Three years ago, I installed a series of four-word poems
on the four sections of each column. Since then, all
the poems have been removed but for one column
which still bears the single word - 'reticence'.
