The Sound Of Home - Poem by Matthew Holloway

The sound of home
it's joyous, truly
the sounds and scents
the comfort found
in the place I rest
the dogs which bark
the cats that sleep
the flowers set
in the gardens keep
when foods a cooking
that sweet aroma
lamb, chicken, beef
or something other
the music playing
that child's laughter
those conversations
serious and foolish
I love them all
and would not change them
the are records and books
aplenty to choose
filler for the soul
open to any reach
the dogs still bark
now the cats are mewing
music is loudly playing
and the child
still laughing
this is the soundtrack
I'll never change
my home, my life
and those scents
are real to the nose
a house alive
the sound of home
it is something
we just, we just know
