The rugs in the living room Are thin in places, and The dog has scratched The painted floors. The end tables are crowded With family pictures Instead of knickknacks Some of the bath towels Have slightly raveled edges, And a washcloth is left in the tub. There are books and newspapers On the coffee table and Hardly a place for a coffee cup. But the house smells of Fresh baked bread or cookies, The lights are on, and The welcome mat is out\. Friends feel free to just drop by. It may not be fancy, but It’s a house that’s happy And comfortably “broken in”.
