MOVING EMOTIONS

Please excuse the amateurish style – this was written over thirty years ago. 

I had completely forgotten about it until my sister recently moved house and I then read a blog post on the subject.

House

MOVING EMOTIONS

It’s quiet for once, that room

Where the children used to play.

Not vibrant, noisy and happy –

We’re moving house today.

The old open-hearth fire

By which the cat would often lay,

Is to be replaced by central heating –

We’re moving house today.

The spare room now so peaceful

Where drunken friends would stay:

No longer filled with hungover groans –

We’re moving house today.

Kitchen windows I can now see out,

Not like on washing day.

No longer misted and clouded over –

We’re moving house today.

And that pretty garden corner,

Where flowers bathe in warm sun rays,

Will soon be tarmaced over –

We’re moving house today.

Rooms warm, inviting and cosy,

I’ll remember them that way,

Not as now – stark, cold and empty.

We’re moving house today.
