cottage 2

I have a little cottage

Where everything’s just right;

The windows bloom with flowers

At dusk there’s candlelight.

The knotted oak beside it

Is webbed with ivy leaves

And honeysuckle tangles

In clusters round the eaves.

The friendly gate swings open

Against a low stone wall

Where quaint old-fashioned blossoms

Design a Paisley shawl;

And up the winding pathway

The stones with moss are grown-

I love that little cottage

Because it is my own.
