windows all about?
She said for looking out;
I said for looking in;
I asked, with a wondering grin,
What she saw from inside;
Unhesitating, she replied,
"I see the works some shining knight
Has done to fill my life with light:
A castle wall with sturdy gates
Keeping out lifes fears and hates,
A palace garden all arrayed
With splendid scenes his hands have made
A million treats out there abide
That make me glad I live inside."
she turned to me,
"Looking in, what do you see?"
Said I, "A warm and cozy nest,
A hearth with caring surely blest,
Walls that ring with laughters sound,
Rooms where joys, not woes, abound,
A welcome place where best friends live,
An atmosphere most positive,
Love and hope and family;
The crucible of better worlds to be;
But best of all, to be true,
I see happiness; I see you."
