Going Home

I am reposting this blog entry because, thanks to my friend, lauri27wsmith, I have been made aware of a song that so perfectly reflects what I am trying to say.  It is called “The Old House” by John Mcdermott.  I have added the lyrics below which I think are beautiful.  You can pull it up on the web if you wish to hear it sung.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
