"Our House"


By Caroline Cecil


 comfy and small- three bedrooms in all

where ever shall I begin?

a townhouse you know, one of five in a row

with neighbors close by to drop in

With two out of three of the bedrooms- peewee

my parent’s room is a suite

and the basement so chilly- it seems rather silly

Its rundown fireplace has no heat

my room is unique- nothing matches at all

with hot purple paint on the walls short and tall

on the tall wall my loft- on the short wall my sister’s

My tall loft is metal- my sister’s has splinters

My big sisters room is cool and blue

Twin bed and TV with remote control too

with her window and view just over a tree

Its view is so calm you’ll take time to see

our kitchen is filled with all that you need

to cook a meal -and plant a seed

to grow the sweet herbs — to season our day

and a TV to watch our friend Rachael Ray

the living room chairs- do not match-

­though this pair is important to me

one- from my grandmother

and as for the other — from pop pop

who meant much to me
