Your notion of a house is shaken
by these blocks of wood.
Although their outer forms are taken
from what we built for good.
Today, however, different shapes
can drill into the sky,
for concrete, steel and glass and tapes
don’t hinder us to try.
Blockhouses made of wood still pull
their magic comfortable card.
The easy life feels wonderful
when cities stressed you hard.
Maybe the former trees enchant,
the wood might speak to you.
And even though you know it can’t
you understand it’s true.
