There is a lovely old house.........in Vermont

that I saw on a website.........and it is for sale
I love our home that we have.......and will never move from it.
But , I have to admit...........these lovely, lonely old places, call to me and
tear at my heartstrings and I can easily imagine living
in them.  
There is also a lovely poem I found ........on the Internet
that fits my feelings perfectly
so, I share this with you today.

“A Quiet Place” by Flora Turrill

Let me find a little house
A home with pretty views
Where evening sunsets 
Lace the sky with glorious pinky hues

Let me ponder memories
And watch the flowers grow
A while to sit and daydream
Some seed that I may sow

Let me find a little house
Placed far away from town
To seek out Nature's luxuries
Upon the unscathed ground

Let me live a humble life
Beneath cerulean skies
For golden is a life well spent
I pledge to treasure mine

Tell me......is there a lovely place that,
although, you love where you are,
still steals your heart away?
I would love to hear!
