House No. 14

The gates are ajar,
the entrance and the back one.
Nights and days
they remain being so.

Burglars do not enter
Intruders keep away.
Looks buoyant
with flowery beds

Acquaintances show up and go,
relatives stay for days,
Hot coffee is served
food is  available  all hours.

The house looks barren.
The iron gates fastened
The wooden ones bolted.
Brass locks flourish.
