That Old Stone House
sits upon a hill
it has sat there for years
and it sets there still.

with Vacant Windows
that seem to stare
at lonely travelers
who may pass by there

No Childrens laughter
in It's empty Rooms
only the sound of the Wind
as it mournfully croons

around It's Gables
and across It's eaves
a lonely sound of sadness
as if that house grieves.
