The Little House

				I think of that small house we owned
				In that happiest time of all,
				When love was new and enduring
				And our children exceeding small.

				The quiet peace of our first home
				Could still inhabit those listening walls,
				Spreading its sweet tranquility
				With echos of love in its halls.

				Does someone still wait by the garden gate
				And a  tiny face press the pane;
				Anticipating the moment when 
				His car heard in the lane?

				The auto door slams and arms enfold
				And all weariness goes away.
				A child laughs and a big dog barks.
				He is home from his long work day.

				This is my prayer for the little house
				That so long ago earned its way.
				May only love be spoken there
				As it was in that bygone day.

				By; Joyce Johnson
