Ancient echoes


Oak lined avenue approach
aged boughs arch cathedral like
revere times past
lives blessed with
wonderment and laughter

Weathered red bricks
two stories tall
beneath moss tinged slate
shelter treasures beneath
from times inexorable erosion

Windows wink
a six panel smile bids you enter
the foyer
grandfather stands sentry
measuring moments
grandmother echoes its mate
from nearby mantle

Insinuating aromas serve notice
stir smiles
excite anticipation
another feast
ritually served
with graciousness and generosity

Scale cherry stairs
squeaking their alarm
Intruder Alert !
Whether friend or foe
don’t come home late

Retire to bed
rest in generations’ arms
those before you
knew all this too
heard the chimes from the ancient ones
marking off hours, weeks, years
