This Old House as Self Portrait

This old house creaks
under the weight of
her history
Shivers when the winter wind
blows through
her rafters

Sighs on balmy nights when
the light from glistening stars
shines through her skylight
This latest edifice added to
improve her image
a bright halo for a
withering queen
But still and all she
represents something
A remnant from a time
when stability and character
She is looked upon as
an icon representing
better times
She bears a plaque that says
Heritage House
She is not allowed to be

A withering queen
the weight of her history
to be demolished
