Cottage For Sale

Broken window view photo for "Cottage For Sale" poem by Winluck Wong, article writer from New Brunswick
This spacious property
Overlooks the river
That embraces trees of either side.
A hilltop location
With exclusive access
Granted by private road.
Below is a secluded beach,
Insulated from the annual noise
Of urban exodus.
The cottage is yours to enjoy
Should you be ready
To replace the windows
That broke down from apathy
For what goes on beyond the pane;
To repair the foundation
That gave way to cut corners
Of integrity patched with shallow bonds;
To basically tear down and rebuild
A home with no regrets,
Proudly standing with the woods
Whose open limbs welcome you
As one of their own.
Price reflects extensive work needed.
