Subject(s): Houses; Winter


Now the days shorten, the autumn is gone;
The house creeps closer from dark to dawn.
The winds of heaven are locked away
By bolt and shutter, the house is gray;
All tucked in snugly and so discreet,
Smug and prim and prettily neat.
But I want the wind with its galloping air;
I long for the naked clean sun to wear;
To give my heart to the wide cloud-sweep.
The house breathes slow -- let the dull house sleep;
Let the dim hours nod by the chimneyside --
I will go house-free and countrywide!
