No One Plays Here Anymore

playhouse-001

She was a little girl then, she had dolls and tea parties. But that was then, before the door and shutters were broken, when the window boxes were tended and pretty little flowers grew. She’ll be leaving home soon, to go to college, begin a career, start her own family. Then she’ll buy a cute little playhouse for her own daughter to play in…during the summer…for a couple years.
