Like this time-worn  tiled roof
Moss-covered,  grimy , broke
Patched up  in places with 
Pieces  of  cheapest  tin 
And asbestos, mantling
A labouring  lattice

Of rafters, beams , ties 
Squatting  amidst  those
Rising,  flashy , fresh 
Modern constructs  by 
A  pell-mell  highway 

I too wait for
To give my space 

Ridding it
Of my stiff
Air and stern

And ire’s

    Someone took some time out to write some great poetry today...Big city encroaching on the small simple way of life...It too happened where I live..So little is left from where I ran free as a child...Now at the end of this poem, I pray you are not referring to your OWN demolition, but the demolition of a neighborhood...I really like this one, Jag! Superb reflections!...Always your friend, Gwendolen

    Hello dear friend, we all need to rid ourselves of unnecessary trappings. Like this old house you describe with such sensitivity, it becomes a task for the brave only. Love, Elizabth
