The Attic Room

The empty room upstairs
painted pear and white
neutral and unobtrusive

A playroom for our only daughter
just across the hall
a jump and a skip
but apart

A secret reading nook
a lookout window
for sunsets and swingset
a sanctuary

Listening room for Brahms
Mozart and Beethoven live loud
Mendelssohn scamps

My husband thinks if he finishes it
another baby will come
What else
could come?


  1. Sounds like you have some plans and dreams of your own for that room!

  2. Love how you use the composers in this piece especially Mendelssohn scamping upstairs and the quiet of Brahms. Visitors could come too, you know : ) but I like Paul's plan!
