It has big steps and a great big hall;
But it hasn't got a garden,

Our House
WE play at our house and have all sorts of fun,
An' there's always a game when supper is done;
An' at our house there's marks on the walls an' the stairs,

That roared without.

House And Man
One hour: as dim he and his house now look
As a reflection in a rippling brook,
While I remember him; but first, his house.
