Poetry

elegy to the house in the woods

elegy to the yellow house near the woods

 

The yellow house, close to the woods

Home to me for as long as I can remember

Now no longer mine

Given to a better family

Forced to move out, Against my will

No longer at home with the chirping birds or the hoping rabbits

No night I don’t think about the yellow house, close to the woods

Closer to friends, farther from home

Moving again soon

Closer to the house near the woods

But I fear it will take me farther away from it
