Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

Home

Home is a bit of Heaven,
      Where children can laugh and play,
Where men can return to rest
      At the end of a long tired day.

Where mothers anxiously wait
      To quiet the anguish calls,
Where pretense looses all glamour
      As the cloak of formality falls.

Like mushrooms growing in woodlands
      Houses spring up over city and lea,
Oh! would that every house was a home
      In this beautiful land of the free!
