The house sways with the wind
its paint grey as a stormy day.
The sun beams through the window panes
coated with grime and faded lace
A dust halo hovers about
a rocking chair that creaks in time
with the pendulum’s swinging.
The hour echoes in the walls
bony hands reached out
bidding Time back to happy days.
