Poem reflection of visit to former home

Thirty Minutes Back Home

I stopped today at my old home place,

Was greeted by the owner with a happy face.

He seemed very glad to see me.

Come on inside so you can see

Some of the changes made.

So daughter Beth and I went inside.

Looking all around trying to decide,

How the many changes we did see,

Adding to the original design. We agree —

Why the family has stayed.

They added to the home place very much,

With new improvements, gave a special touch.

Surely made us glad we came by.

Said come to a cookout. Oh, we’ll try,

To sit and visit in the shade.
