I can see a place by the window   Where firelight once played inside.   I can picture the front as it used to be   And grounds so clean and wide.   Doors with well-oiled hinges   Let in our willing feet.   With everything in place as it should   And everything trim and neat.   I see it in mellowed reflection   Until years have changed it to be   A house with a memory; it's more than a house   It once was home to me.
