Poem: The Grange House
The Grange House
The house lies just over the hill from town,
up a dirt road that transports you
to a time of black and white photographs
and history books.
It is abandoned, a physical memory
slowly fading, like paint, like dusk, waiting
for the honeysuckle vines
to swallow it in a fragrant morass.
You stand there a while, and imagine
life filling the faded Grange House,
and for a moment, you hear voices,
calling out like your own past,
crying softly on the wind: "Please."
