I was inspired to put this up by Billy's recent shot.. My mother is 86 this year P.G. and every time we pass an old house she recites this poem she learned many moons ago, there are about six verses so I picked my favourite two
The House With Nobody In It
This house on the road to Suffern needs a dozen panes of glass,
And somebody ought to weed the walk and take a scythe to the grass.
It needs new paint and shingles and the vines should be trimmed and tied,
But what it needs the most of all is some people living inside
But a house that has done what a house should do, a house that has sheltered life,
That has put it's loving arms around a man and his wife
A house that has echoed a baby's laugh and held up his stumbling feet,
Is the saddest sight when it's left alone, that ever your eyes could meet.
