Home by Eleanor Scates Dulany
Give me a home that two have built
With dreams and sacrifice and song,
Where youth and age have laughed and wept,
And love has mellowed every wrong.
Whose walls have echoed with the ring
Of children's voices in and out,
The merriment of festive board,
And human kindness 'round about.
Give me a home where selflessness
Is spent in doing little things
That rate so high in happiness
The whole house breathes the peace it brings.
Then give me grace to understand
That men may build from house to dome
With all the art of masonry
But only love can build a home!
