Nobody home

Nature takes back
What is built by mens hands
Unattended
Vines creep
Where no one sleeps.
Who walked these halls,
Gazed from the windows
At the day beyond,
Did children play
On waxed wooden floors
Or sit in the sun
While harvesting the fields.
Whose life slipped by
Under the high ceilings
Of this now idle mansion,
Do ghosts echo silence
Off molding walls
And do people wonder
As they drive by
At the inhabitants now gone,
Do they even notice
This decay
As piece by piece
It crumbles away.

  2. This is just great. I almost bought a house similar to this, but it would have cost twice as much to fix as it would have to buy it. I also wondered what sort of haunted it was.
