the noises can still startle me
three years here in these walls.
creaks and groans. welcome pains.
new feet step where generations have run
topple giggle tumble one after another through 138 years
these old Victorian walls.
I can feel them the years
of living this house has been
I can feel it.
smiling in just the way
an old beloved house would smile
settling in sighing even at
new feet, new hearts new voices
roaming its rooms
warming its hearths.
Care-taker of what comes next~
