Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

OUR HOMES

The crowning loveliness of vale and hill,
In wind-blown groves, or gardens banked with flowers,
Our homes rise stately, monumental, still,
Something to cling to in confusing hours.

A hundred thousand homes seem to wait,
When sunset falls in amber, gray or rose;
Their gleaming lamps, like beacon lights, translate
The restful welcome, home alone bestows.

And we are thankful when in memory's pride,
Our homes keep faith with their traditional lore;
To these loved hearths at close of evening tide,
We turn our grateful, longing thoughts once more.
