Two Sister’s Croft House

The old grey walls with the flaking door,

Gossamer windows hide rooms to explore.

A crack in the gable where water seeps,

Bulging walls where green ivy creeps.

The lean to shed with the slamming door,

Stores life-long belongings, in use no more.

Shattered roof tiles scattered around,

Slate-grey diamonds pepper the ground.

The two sister’s cottage; a home no more,

Waiting for someone to love and restore.
