Wonderful Welcome to 2015

This morning I woke up to greet the New Year and found the most wonderful surprise tied to the bottom of our mailbox in a plain manilla envelope with a simple red ribbon

 

A Love Poem From a Neighbor

A Love Poem From a Neighbor

There was no note, no return address, no identifying marks at all.

Who composed this surprise salutation?  What artist has  secretly penned this marvelous compliment to our house?

I am thoroughly intrigued and utterly perplexed!

What a delightful way to wake to the new year! I have been beaming all day – whoever you are – Thank You! We are humbled by your mysterious kindness and will certainly aim to emulate your gracious geniality throughout the year!  Such a lovely tone you have set for the year –

 

This is the poem –

A Love Poem Form A Neighbor

There were swans on the pond

in South Hamilton

But number 14 Bridge Street

had a pig on the doorstep,

Turtles on the picket fence

and Rabbits and Squirrels

and a pink

Christmas Tree!

Doors painted green

and Rose and Blue,

Boxwoods in intricate

Designs,

Who lives in this yellow

House?

Beatrix Potter?

A Fairy Princess?

A Reformed

Bride of Frankenstein?
It is a gift Box

This house

Decked in Ribbons

and Bows.

Not just for Christmas

But for Mondays

And Rainy Days

And Blue Jays

And All God’s Creatures

Lucky enough

To

Pass

By.
