A Happy Home

by Susanjohn

There is a house around the bend,
Quick sneak a peek! I'd recommend.
( dismiss soft squeaks from country mouse)
Around the bend there is a house.

Smooth cobblestones soon beckon me,
as mossy trails grow wild 'n free.
Majestic queen in multi-tones,
soon beckon me, smooth cobblestones.

Glass windows stained mosaic hues,
cast tantalizing spark'ling views.
Victorian pizzazz ingrained ...
Mosaic hues, glass windows stained.

Each spandrel wraps wood porch encased,
'pon corbels jutting, interlaced.
Grid latticework trim, overlaps
wood porch encased, each spandrel wraps.

Steep turrets rise as archway looms,
soon grasping braided ivy blooms.
Remarkable charm, I surmise,
as archway looms, steep turrets rise.

Adornments placed 'neath roofing crest,
when architecture's finely dressed.
Knob finials stand firmly braced,
'neath roofing crest adornments placed.

Bright mornings' sun shall soon bewitch
as rambling roses find their niche.
An English garden, so well done!
Shall soon bewitch bright mornings' sun.

Her beauty beams throughout the day,
My neighborhood queen on display.
Enchanted dollhouse shaping dreams,
throughout the day, her beauty beams.

This happy home, she's grinning bright!
( I must admit, those smiles delight)
Around the bend, again, I'll roam ...
She's grinning bright, this happy home!
