THE HOUSE

A Poem by Leah Yoho.

It remembers time that has flown by.
Its' sister, though smaller, holds equal character.
Their neighbor has seen many more years and people.
They hold a common bond upon the land which they share together.
But they are in danger, the homes are old and in need of partial repair.
Their neighbor, a mound, must protect its ancient contents.
They have hope though, many are working to preserve and protect the three friends.
They will soon be able to tell their stories to a younger generation.

(For Nila Chaddock and other Cockayne house workers.)
