Goodbye House

On Dorset Avenue
There was a gray house
With a secret staircase

And a clown
with a sad face

And there were four panes of stained glass

And a backyard full of grass

And two little chairs

And swirls on the stairs

And a mantel between windows 
And a place to warm toes

And two beds in the attic 
where guests could doze

And African violets 
by the back door

All over the house 
There was wood galore

Goodbye family room

Goodbye tiger in my bedroom

Goodbye dog in the dining room

Goodbye hoop

Goodbye jellybean

Goodbye 4816
