The Farmhouse Remembers

The spiders have made
their homes
above the chandelier.
We do not turn up the lights.
Sunlight enters through the window.
The wood-stove warms the kitchen.

Upstairs someone is singing
and downstairs the mandolin on its stand
and the upright bass and the eighth-size violin
hum a harmony just below
human hearing.
These walls hold every song.
