I Look Around

I look aroundVintage wallpaper on uneven wallsDeep window sills anchor large, two-over-two panesAntique wood floors glow and slopeI look aroundA Christmas tree stood there, and there, and there, and there, tooOops! Pennies scattered across the roomOld houses are so dustyI look aroundMany a gathering in this room and thatMany a laugh and a tear spilledMany a meal made and sharedI look aroundOnce clutter-filled is now clutter-freeThe unseen have grown quietWill they stay or go or come?I look aroundThings are not a lifeA house is not a homeThe only thing constant is changeI look around
