Houseman

Houseman ,we made a house
But we lost our tree in bough,
A balcony hanging to the tree,
For a view of milkman below.

However we made our house,
We would lose our mountains.
We would lose sun in its trees
To empty sky where we stare.

( referring to A. E. Housman’s beautiful poem Give me my land of boughs in leaf…)
