HOUSE of LOVE. V. Terry (Jan. 24, 1983)

HOUSE OF LOVE - January 24, 1983

If you could build a happy house where everyone would come;
Just to find a place to rest when all their work was done.
The roof would have to be made with utmost care,
So it would hold, and shelter, all who entered there.

The windows would surely be of understanding and so clear –
You could see through them and never have a fear.
The rug would be gentleness but firm beneath your feet;
Woven tight by threads of love; here, living would be so sweet.

Contentment would cover the walls so they would fairly glow;
The light would be happiness; every linen white as snow.
All the sounds would be of joy , without ever a tear-

Yes, this is where I’d like to go to live all thru’ the year.
