Moving “House”

Colyne Stewart, July AS XXXVII (2003)

For Berend, Brandt, Eirik, Galiana and Mahault

Eighteen months ago we had never met
And yesterday I saw you all
In the dining room of our new house
In the kitchen, on the porch
Glasses in hands, smiling and laughing
After many hours of hard work
Sweating, lugging, under burning sun
Now mingling with our parents and brothers
And I came to a realization

Though we do not have a name, nor device, nor charter of ideals
We are a House: a House of Spirit, a House of Friends
And what is more
A House of Family.
