This one isn’t quite as old as yesterday’s post. American poet Dave Moore wrote this only a few years ago.
Americans have a history, but for most of us it’s not a long one. And Dave lives in Minnesota, which was only widely settled by Europeans less than 200 years ago. Even given this short history, people sometimes like to research the history of their homes, and to find out who the former owners and occupants were. I don’t know if Dave did this with his house, but he didn’t, he imagined it well.
I set this to short acoustic guitar tune, and I am again the reader of this piece. Although it may take a moment to load and appear, the player should appear just below this and allow you to hear it.
One thought on “This House Is 100 Years Old”
I had to listen to this one to find out what intellectual property of mine Frank was violating–maybe I had a different title, something cheery like “House of Death” or better yet “House of Leaves.”
Anyway, nicely presented.
