SMALL HOUSE SMILE


SMALL  HOUSE  SMILE

On my way to work

Along Long-Loving Lane

A  small “For Sale” house

Is lived in again.

A young couple bought

What an older gent had,

Their moving in changes

Forlorn times to glad.

What used to be shuttered

And empty a while

Has been fixed up quite nicely

And wears a big smile.

Festooned with lights

And Christmas inside

These cold winter nights…

Is a house smiling wide!

  1. I love this! Imagine the stories every house could tell, if walls could speak…this is simply charming.

  2. this work is well done it would be nice if walls could talk

    • THANK YOU! It’s one of the houses that leave the front Christmas lights all night, so I can enjoy them coming home from work *See CHRISTMAS LIGHT REDUX0.
