Houses and HomesHouses and Homes by pravus-malum
Houses and homes, how does one define?
Where does one distinguish the line?
Both have inviting doors,
And shining squeaky floors.
Both have harrowing halls,
Each side with towering walls.
Both have roofs with tiles,
And windows to look out for miles.
But the difference, I think,
Lies not within the kitchen sink,
Or the shingles,
Or even the doorbell jingles.
You see, in homes, there is a certain pitch
Of such rich and rolling laughter which
Reverberates thought every room
Leaving no place for gloom.
You see, in homes, there is a certain scent
Of warmth and joyous days spent
The smell of love in baking sweets
The special bond from sharing treats.
So these things, I think,
And not the kitchen sink,
Or the doors, or the floors,
Not the halls, nor the walls,
Are what makes a house a Home.
