My home is expansive
Pillars to the sky
Windows shape the light
Into colors that fly by

Doors of glossy oak
Impenetrable without key
The locks number many
Designed to admit just me

The walls are solid stone
Silk tapestries, down them fall
They glimmer in the light
Dancing; I enjoy them all

A floor of solid marble
White with golden streams
Carries me across the place
As lustrously it beams

The light’s what makes the home
It resounds in every room
From the kitchen to the courtyard
Caressing roses in full bloom

Their scent adds to the light
It too lingers from space to space
Filling me with happiness
Quickly bringing smiles to my face

My home is my only haven
I stay within by choice
And somehow it saddens me-
It’s filled with but one voice
