From A Distance

I can see the house now –
Sitting still and framed,
(Like a freshly dusted picture)
Clearer than the day

Between the woods and fields,
Her white walls stand alone –
A quaint and quiet symbol
Of purity and home

Unmoving though her body is,
Yet moving all the same,
She whispers warmly of the past,
Inviting me to come again

O how I long to touch her still – 
To enter in and have my fill,
(To taste that sweetness known before)
And drown my sadness at her door.
