Abandoned Little Home - Poem by Marilyn Lott

It is the cutest little house
You wonder about its story
You know that it was lovely
In bygone days with all its glory.

A couple, probably newly weds
Moved in and made big plans
Worked together relentlessly
On this worn ‘ole dried out land.

Babies then were born
A family to pass it on
This little house and windmill
A place they could belong.

As I travel ‘cross the country
So many homes like this
They are blessed, I know they are
With a gentle Angel's kiss.

    Nice to know the story of the land and the people, their moderate but abandoned homes. It has a charm of its own. Not a tourist place in the conventional sense. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Yes, there is charm and beauty off the beaten path that we are amazed at. Thank you for your comment. I don't get in here often enough. I sold two poems for text books and I need to get in here daily!
