I am Building a House...

I am building a house.
A wonderful house.
A house that only I could live in.
A house too big for a mouse.
A house that is unique.

I am building a house.
It has thick walls.
Many windows.
Also, many halls.

I am building a house.
It has a basement.
A shaded porch.
For when in the Summer,
I can sit on it and drink tea.

I am building a house.
It has a kitchen, a
train room, a bathroom,
a bedroom, even a TV room!

I am building a house.
It has a garden in the backyard.
A soccer field.
A shed for holding tools.
A pasture with goats.

I am building a house.
A log cabin in Canada, that’s what it will be!
A house next to the sea.
Or, a house in the middle of a prairie!

I am building a house.
A house that my kids, and grandkids,
and great grandkids, and so on and so forth,
can live in.

My kids will tell how I built this house.
No, it isn’t a house next to the sea.
Or a log cabin in Canada.
But, it’s just perfect for you and me.

This poem deserves the highest recognition and honor. It is so wonderful to know a teenager is writing poetry and thinking about their future so positively...how lovely is that! Auntie P
