Sinew of the Hearth

Sinew of the Hearth The rafters in the Old homestead creak Heavy winds ravage, Sounding bleak Two by fours are the Bones of the structure Termites diseased the Prowess of its infrastructure Three generations found Safety within her walls A miracle must happen Before the old house falls Through the cracks the Wind whistles loud and clear Another storm may level All they we all hold dear Raising children, cash flow, Made neglect fell on the home The silence of the destroyer Devoured all vital proteome Just when we prepared for Survival the winds became calm The sun warmed her face The house shined with grace The homestead rose in Strength once more Although she cried, She held her inner core Faith is the hearth That declined Stormy threats, Endurance fills her spine Wisdom and fearlessness Adhere and bind Our homestead resisted The hands of time Ever so stately She still stands like new The presage of strength Resides her resilient sinew Carole Cookie Arnold 2011
