My home is faraway,
but it is not where I stay.
For where I stay is not my home,
even though it’s where l roam.

My house was in a different place,
until the owners wanted space,
so it was cut in half
and moved by a raft.

My house, a bit too small
no one knew what to do at all,
that house, now on it’s new mount
should have a basement dug out !

My home is a wonderful place,
there’s lots of nature and lots of space .
I love my home for what it is,
and all the memories it gives.
