This is the first home I have lived in that has a beautiful front porch. The front porch is the welcome before you reach the front door. It’s a great place to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine.
Birds are quiet now; they’ve gone to sleep
I can hear the little peepers peep.
Lightning bugs sparkle as they do their dance
Mother Nature leaves nothing to chance.
Temperature’s holding at 72.
No one here but me and you~
Pour me a cold one and set right down
On the old porch swing.
