This old house…

I love this old house with all of its charm
plonked right down in the middle of a farm.

With it's sloping floors and cracks in the walls
its high vaulted ceilings leaking rain like a waterfall.

The air conditioner has broken, leaving us dripping in sweat.
Still manageable though, the fans haven't quit working yet.

The paint is chipping and the to do list is long
it's near a hundred years old and still standing strong.

There's been rain, sleet, snow even hail
but this old home has always prevailed.

It's not fancy or posh or level or square
but for me there's no rival, none even compare.
