    Default Moving Poems



    ~~~~Sold~~~~



    The gavel came down and sentence pronounced

    Out and out I must go of my house



    Sixteen years gone down the drain

    Lost within the company's brain



    Upper levels conspire at still

    Against those of us who have a will



    Let's send them here see how the do

    Then once they settle in.bam! Here's house two



    Thing taken for granted are striped away

    As we are sent upon our way



    Never to hear that familiar creak

    That once never failed to made you freak



    The sliding door with outdoors in

    Now replaced a heart to win



    Carpet worn by foe and friend

    Has met with its untimely end



    The squeaky windows and stubborn door

    Will never lose there strange allure



    The musty smell is not the same

    When held within another's domain



    'Home" rings hollow within new walls

    And travels differently down stucco halls



    Tiles have never felt so cold

    Nor an empty ring such fear ere hold



    No pond shall ever rival the overgrown puddle

    That used to put your folks in a muddle



    The ugly swing set's memories fade

    And new experiences try to invade



    To take the place of baseball walks

    And friendly neighborhood time talks



    A peaceful graveyard now dead to me

    I wish these things once more to see

    William Blake - "The Chimney Sweeper"



    A little black thing among the snow,

    Crying "'weep! 'weep!" in notes of woe!

    "Where are thy father and mother, say?"

    "They are both gone up to the church to pray.



    "Because I was happy upon the heath,

    And smiled among the winter's snow,

    They clothed me in the clothes of death,

    And taught me to sing the notes of woe.



    "And because I am happy and dance and sing,

    They think they have done me no injury,

    And are gone to praise God and his Priest and King,

    Who make up a heaven of our misery."
