Forgotten

 

And when the winds moan wildly,
When the woods are bare and brown
And when the swallow’s clay-built nest
From the rafter crumbles down;
When all the untrod garden-paths
Are heaped with frozen leaves,
And icicles, like silver spikes,
Are set along the eaves;

Verse from: The Old Homestead by Alice Cary, From Friends’ Intelligencer, Volume XXV, Philadelphia, 1869

Never could under stand abandon houses.

I love poetry. The kind of poems that you post, I could read all day. The broken down swing reminds me of the swing on the porch at my grandma's house.
