Crack in the Roof
Farthest corners have been held
for far too long now.
That roof is cracking
and there is so much snow.
Long held, water is dripping now
damping everything I know.
During sunlight of the summer
I barely feel the trouble
but now that I am cold,
the collapse seems inevitable.
But this is my home
and I shall go down with it, if need be.
Until then I’ll fix those cracks
which only the house owner can see.
