They see the house as quaint
But I know differently
When the moon shines, the bells will chime, the glory days so faint.

The house sees light
Of this I'm sure
It beseeches the sun, the games are won, the leader of the fight.

And in the darkness of the day
The light of the night
I take the candle, oh precious candle, and take in all the might.

The wintry mornings
Storms without warnings
Come to me, sing to me, oh house of fallen fight.

The author's comments:
This piece is about a house that has seen great sadness, yet people on the outside see it as charming and welcoming.

Like the rhyming! Sometimes when people add that in, it tends to seem childish; it really fits here though!
