My eyes are so sleepy and soon I am dreaming, I find a staircase and leave my reality; At the top of the stairs is a house enchanting, My childhood home, oh such delightful fantasy. And I open the door, To a house I adore; And then I see Suzanne, Oh, the Lord had a plan . . . Suzanne would leave us weeping, but here was playing, Oh, in this enchanted house dwells my family; I hear Mom and Grandma in the kitchen talking, Their laughter like tingling bells of a rhapsody. Down below an uproar, I go down to explore; Oh Dad I almost sang, A story Dad began . . . Dad was telling Grandpa a big tall tale laughing, Then, I go up to my room where I was happy; With my dolls and teddy bears and books still waiting, My family, entwined in this sweet tapestry. Enchanted house for sure, And from my eyes tears pour; All dead - the Lord's command, I turned away and ran . . . back to reality . . . __________________ May 20, 2016 Rhyme Verse For the contest, Enchanted House sponsor, Nayda Ivette Negron Third Place

Dear Constance: what an enchanting poem. Your voice was so soothing and although there are sad memories it is perfectly balanced with happy memories. Just like the house in the picture that seems precariously balanced and yet doesn't tip. What a clever girl to figure it out. I don't know how to stop the clicks on start and finish either. SuZ
