Front porches were always on homes built before World War II
for in the summer, they ere an extra living room
Before the days of air conditioning
Before the days of television
Linderhof's porch is wide and welcoming
Although it's not always been
And with enough comfortable chairs
for Husband Jim and myself
as well as company
It's a porch decorated in wicker and wood and ferns!
An antique wicker rocker
With the ferns in the background!
And the two wooden rockers
With a wicker table between
And the only blooming plant on the porch
It's too shady for a blooming plant and so
we rotate the pot plants in the garden
For every porch needs bloom!
We begin our mornings in these rockers
With the first cup of coffee
And chat and the crossword puzzle
Sometimes, too, when the weather is nice,
we'll sit out here in the evening
But it's gotten too hot now
And so we retreat back to the air condition!
In my opinion, every home should have a wide and welcoming
