A Longhouse Birdhouse: EARNED HERMITAGE ~

Letter To The Next Landowner

 

You won’t keep it up like we did

Not to worry — we did it for a half century

 

The stone hut, the sturdiest looking, will go first

I built it for our son — earth to earth

 

The house we re-built from ground to ridge

All the time it made the most perfect sense

 

A minister and his wife owned the house before we did

He not only sold us the house, he married us

 

The land was cut & mowed & planted & moved & loved

Every day of our lives, but don’t believe it

 

The land will tell you —

We are buried here

 

Our bones are the stones to be found

Wait for the wind

Bob Arnold

BEAUTIFUL   DAYS
Longhouse
