The little House is quite surprised
When a Spaceship lands nearby
Hey Spaceship what are you doing here?
She is quite thrilled by his reply
Hello nice to meet you little House
I am just passing through
I always stop to see the sights
And you what do you do?
I just stand about here feeling blue
The little House sadly says
I wish that I could fly like you
That would brighten up my days
So why don’t you just take a stroll?
The Spaceship asks the House
There’s a lovely field just over there
With goats horses and cows
But I’m a House she says to him
And houses cannot walk
I don’t see why not the Spaceship says
I am amazed that you can talk
So the little House just saunters off
And has a wander round the town
She has a different point of view
Now she no longer is house bound
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m not a house.
i love this! it begs to be read out loud and shared with old and young alike! z
How very kind of you.
Your comments are much appreciated.
Yes, sometimes we put limits on our selves. The painting is beautiful!
AnElephant will pass your praise on to Ms Sartor.
Thank you for that.
Loved the poem.
Indeed it is all about shifting away from our long held beliefs about ourselves. And as we do this, we stand to gain new perspectives.
The spaceship clearly was a mentor to the house….
Life is about trying new things indeed.
Thank you for visiting.
this is lovely..this kind of a poem brings pleasure to adults and children alike.
What a sweet comment, AnElephant is moved by your praise.
Je voulais exprimer en peu de mots rimés
L’admiration profonde que j’ai pour ce petit conte
Dont la sagesse si simplement tu racontes
Et qui me rappelle ce que je ne saurais oublier :
Tous les encouragements que tu m’as donnés
M’ont ouvert des horizons insoupçonnés
Et tout comme la petite maison,
Je vois le monde d’une autre façon.
Merci est un mot trop petit…
Et ce commentaire est trop long!
Jamais trop long, cherie.
UnElephant est content d’aider une chere amie.
If a house seeking a different view walked over me, I would take a very dim view of it!
Best stay out of AnElephant’s imagination to be safe!
how magical your writings are my friend…. always love the adventures you take us on 😉
A little bit of whimsy does you good!
Sounds like a little fable to tell us all to move out of the ruts we make for ourselves. 🙂
Every day is an adventure, MyBeautifulFriend
Anelephant says walk the talk yeh ? nice
Thanks, glad you enjoyed!
I think that AnElephant has done really well
With his talking ship and house.
So it is with pleasure that Alastair
Stands to face you and bows.
The house that walks
