A House with Nobody In It

I also had to memorize this people when I was in the 7th grade in Dalhart,
Texas. For some reason I have always remembered the poem, not all of it
but the first paragraph. Decided to see if I could find it and sure enough
here it is. Sad but lovely.

Comment on:28,

I have admired this poem every since I read it in a library book. This poem
reminds me of all the empty houses in my neighborhood. Many have been torn
down, but I always think about someone lived in it perhaps years ago. I
live in East St. Louis, Ill This is a poem that tends to search the soul of
man. Joyce may your spirit rest in peace. Your gift came from God.

The House with Nobody in It

While rummaging through some papers, I found this poem that was
hand-written to my Mother from her Mother. She went on to tell my Mother
that she could relate to this house when you passed a certain empty house
in their little town. My Grandmother had attached a picture of the empty
house. My Mother had given her the Book "The Best Loved Poems of the
American People" in December 1970.
My Grandmother loved poems and recited them to us all the time. I am so
blessed that I found this poem, written in my Grandmother's handwriting.
Both she and my Mother are deceased. It such a shame that I never learned
much poetry in school and my children and grandchildren haven't a clue. I
will pass this on to them, After I Learn to Recite It!

Thank you so much for such beautiful poetry.
