It isn’t the walls or the shingles.

Or even the carpeted floors,

It isn’t the knotty-pine cupboards

Or even the backyard or fence;

It isn’t the lawn–there was not one,

Nor the carport or ample garage,

It isn’t the way that it’s laid out,

If I were designing, I think I’d do more.

What it is, is where it’s located,

Near my son and his family close-by,

It’s a town that seems quite old fashioned

and laid-back by modern day standards.

It isn’t the best or the finest,

but what it is, it suits us quite well,

I knew from the moment I saw it

That this was the place we’d call home.


Sandra Lee Smith/December, 2008
