Oldhouse – painting from stock photo by inky


When the owners left

the house looked

a little delapidated




Old paint on the walls

hardly a picasso

showed what needed

changing for the better



Electricals changed

Gas men took a visit

while new paint hit

freshly sugar – soaped



No Carpet – but Rugs

on Laminated wood floors

lighting to brighten

the mood of the place and show off

the spectrum of colour


What’s for Tea ? the little lad asks

as pots boil on the brand new cooker

while his brother draws pictures

sitting by the sofa

watching Saturday Afternoon cartoons
