grow and sweetly rub up against me

bloom your lilacs thru my windowsill

creep pridefully thru slits in my porch

don't show your faces morning glory

i want you but my farmhouse decries

your spiteful blue a pest unbidden


and be my heart's most loveliest repast

thou art to me a foliage for the seasons

Autumns will not last

before the fireplace i'll sit

and dream away the snow

while deer amble about

and forage the apples you've laid out

a Winter's foodly spread to take away the dread

and bring us then to Spring

i simply loved this house...the roots of the trees always attempted to wander inside in Spring and make me laugh when i saw them peeping thru the wall in my bathroom

i never had the heart to cut them completely and only cut them back and of course they died each Winter

nature is such a fine designer ;-))
