In the Big Brick House there was a family
And a basement where no one could watch TV.
Ivy that grew from Mom’s wedding bouquet.
And a lively front yard
where they played croquet.
A garden where two well-loved dogs are buried.
And a cool laundry chute
–way more fun than to carry.
A Little House Under the Steps
And a sisters’ room
where secrets were kept.
A handy entrance when they lost their keys
And a perfect hiding spot when playing Sardines
A mailbox that announced with a jarring squeak
And a sun deck for a water fight sneak
There were three happy kids
And two parents who loved them.
A warm fireplace below
And a tight roof above them.
Good night 2222
Good night brick house with a family
Good night basement, no watching TV
Good night croquet, Good night bouquet.
Good night chute, buried dogs, Pepper’s step
Good night Little House Under The Steps
Good night mail box, good night hiding spot
Good night handy entrance that no one forgot.
Good night happy house,
may you always be loved.
Warm fireplace below
tight roof above.
