Changing kitchen is a stress
The house is such a mess
Twenty years of good old service
Brought memories with us
There’s chaos all over the place
Living room no space
It’s not finish after two weeks
Eating salad and leeks
We’ll celebrate when it is done
Cook a meal and have fun

  1. I love taking ordinary things, like home renovations, and elevating them to the level of poetry. You did a wonderful job with that, and I believe your renovation will be just as beautiful as your Sonnetina Due. You should write a poem about your kitchen, or work in the kitchen, or some such thing, and hang it in the finished room. 🙂
