The Cabin – A Poem

Salt Lake City – Image by alh1 on

Ancestral notched cabin raised on planked risers.

Hewn from trees in the wooded acre, held together

By the chinking material of the family’s bonded tether.

Heated by a fired resolve, buffeted by candle lights

Where night skies turned stars into porch-lights,

Where living as simply as possible was cabin entry,

Into tranquility’s door with contentment, its spare key.
