“Memories of a White House”

White was the house
green were the trees
memories of a long life left behind
the noise of activity, every day rush was gone…
long ago.

The only thing left was the old couple
in the silence of age,
embraced on a clear spring morning
by the friendly music of their birds
and the bright colors of fresh flowers.
