Corners in Limbo

Our house got smaller as
my brother and I grew.
He and I shared a room
the smallest of just two.

Mom and Dad were busy
making a life for us.
We were sent to corners
when we started to fuss.

We each had a table,
each had a box, our chair,
It's where we'd did homework;
we would store "our" toys there.

Both corners had windows
and the very best part
Ev'ry three months, we'd trade.
One faced a playground park.

The other window faced
a busy, traffic street.
There it was fun to watch
People who chanced to meet.

I can hear mama now
"Boys, corners in limbo -
it's summer... winter...fall...
time to switch your window."
