We Went Looking

We went looking for our first home, when I found one decaying house all alone. The first one had a huge porch, it looked like it had seen a torch. Down this street one had the door and a window out, must have been from a drought. Walking through a garden of ferns the next day, we found one with a roof of gray. Then we got inside, I saw a huge staircase and cried. The rosette ornament caught my eye, now with whispers I say lets buy.
