It’s Crooked

We unpack and put away

every item in its own place to stay.

We’ve moved it all in.

Let the fun now begin!

We’ll hang all the pictures today.


With level and hammer and awl

and nails we place art on the walls.

We’re tired, it’s true.

Took the whole day to do!

Not straight, but it’s even, we’ll call.

      We used to measure, and my husband still does with some large pieces; me – I’m all for eyeballing it!
