Home is where the heart grows fond. Family and friends form lasting bonds. Home is safe. A sacred place. To love, support and share personal space. We hate to leave but can't wait to arrive from air, from sea, by train, long drive. Hang our hat, lose our shoes. A spot for Fluffy & Fido to snooze. Call for a pie or cook a large meal. Fire up grill may be what you feel. Backyard fun is for everyone. Jump in the pool until it's too cool. Leaves turn red, rake's in the shed. Winter snow, fire aglow, just in time for hot co-coa. Kids grow up, move out, return. Summer sun can really burn. But have no fear 'cause mom is near with sunblock to be amply smeared.
