‘A plot of land’ – New poem

From where I sit was once a piece of countryside before the Victorians built houses on the land.  This poem explores that thought and the people who built it, as well as live within the walls.

‘A plot of land’

A plot of land
unspoiled and bland

With a plan to build
a house to become a home
that would withstand
weathers of all types
in season upon season
& stand tall
for decades, eras
& across centuries

Providing a shelter
for family and friends
all from a piece of land
once untouched and bland

Hearts built the walls
to hold hearts young and wise
& for young hearts to grow up and old

With some stories untold
with only the walls and bricks
hearing every word
the land that it stands
captures the lives of many
silently yet strong

For the eras and years
a plot of land
would become a place,
a home
& one day
our own.
