THE STRONG HOUSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Our love is like a strong house
Last Line: To try the locked door?
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.


Our love is like a strong house
Well roofed against the wind and rain --
Who passes darkly in the sun
Again and again?

The doors are fast, the lamps are lit,
We sit together talking low --
Who is it in the ghostly dusk
Goes to and fro?

Surely ours is a strong house,
I will not trouble any more --
But who comes stealing at midnight
To try the locked door?
