Description: The poet looks into the fog and a vision of the past comes rolling through. There are two drovers in an oxen drawn wagon taking their harvest from a farm in southeastern PA or northern DE to the market in Dover, DE. In the days before paved roads this trek was an annual overnight adventure that the farmers looked forward to. As they trod over the muddy roads they talk about what they want to buy when they get to the market as they look forward to spending the night in the Mermaid Tavern... Are you watching?
