The House By the Side of the Road

Being retired has its perks. One is having the time to write for this blog. Another is choosing my own schedule. The best part is being able to volunteer and give back to the community. I found this beautiful little poem painted on glass and in a gilded frame while volunteering at the Habitat Restore. I really love the poem because it very concisely says what I feel about this stage of my life.  I hope you enjoy it as well

The House by the side of the Road

Let me live in a house by the side of the road

Where the race of men  go by

The men who are good and the men who are bad

As good and as bad as I

I would not sit in the scorner’s seat

Or hurl the cynic’s ban

Let me live in ha house by the side of the road

And be a friend to man
