Tangled Vines

Tangled vines crawl up the old, white brick home They move here and there as if they’re alive They’re sheltered under the roof, free to roam Many places in this scene, they could strive Leaving a great aura about this dive Vines cross each other, leaves an awesome look Better than lines written in any book Both the old house and the dead vines have grace They align pulling you in like a hook Soothing and calming you watch them take chase
