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.

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.
