- Old But Still Beautiful -

 

                                 A garden fence worn by the weather
                            The entrance port screaming in the breeze
                               The paint is peeling off many years ago
                                Inside the port where it grows timothy
                                     between weeds and dead roots

                           An old and weather worn houses in the garden
                                 The house has its soul, but no people
                                   A long time ago, a beautiful home
                                       Much joy, laughter and love
                              in this old house and the uncared garden

                          The roses are deep red and is a beautiful sight
                                    they creep up the unpainted wall
                                   and cover almost the entire house
                                  A beautiful carpet of deep red roses
                           There is a forgotten garden that lives its own life

    Lovely poem it reminds me of an old house across the street from mine that has lovely red roses growing right up the side of it. Even though the house is old - beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Thanks for welcoming me to Poetrysoup. Take care pam:)
