The Cottage

Down verdant lanes and muddy tracks
a neglected cottage dwells
encroaching growth of trees and grass
and long gone last farewells.

Broken slates and shattered brick
with ivy clinging tight
encrusted panes and shattered frames
suppress and block the light.

An open door on one hinge swings
to entice and crave attention
to an inky dark forlorn and stark
with a feeling of apprehension.

Wallpaper hangs in tattered threads
mould and damp abundant
an upward stair a broken pipe
water flows inundant.

No longer fit for family life
it's memories fading fast
of children playing in the halls
in a dim and distant past.

Down verdant lanes and muddy tracks
a neglected cottage fading
into the undergrowth of life
and memories remaining.
