Our Home — A River

Our home, like a river flows
Breathes in sunshine, glints, glows

Dresses in shadows drawn by the morning sun
Windows twinkling, glowing with irrepressible fun

Grows, expands gently, with our hearts,
Accommodates guests, welcomes in every part

Ebbs to cocoon us, a soothing coolness, show
On a hot day, provides shade, shadow

Washes away the tiredness of a long day
A refuge from battles, a place of rest, of play

A restless launching pad for new adventures,
A sustaining comfort, in tumultuous ventures

Our home like a river flows, stolid, solvent
Ever changing, ever flowing, ever constant
