Thatched Cottage

My dream half came true

I got to go inside a thatched cottage

A replica of one that is.

Imagination produced a taste of lives lived there

Cooking Utensils stacked beside the large open grate

The bed beside the same grate

Curtained off for a sick child, we were told

The back room

With its quilted covered bed

White washed walls

Oil lamp and bible on a bedside table

Sacred heart picture with red light

On a small table by the window pitcher and bowl for washing.

Where did the rest of the family sleep?

I cried for a lost home.
