Carved Letters

In our iris bog, there stand two enormous beech trees.  

Enormous,  I tell you.

They are old.  The tops are starting to come down and we can tell that they are starting to hollow out.   A spring bubbles up from beneath the roots of one of them. 

And one day, on close inspection, we noticed that about seven feet up, some markings on the tree.

That's a CW on the left and a big K on the right.  It looks like K's knife was a little sharper. 

I wish they'd put the date, too. 

There were two K's who grew up on this place in the 1930's and 40's.   I wonder which one left his mark.  And who was CW?
