TREASURE TROVE 68A VISIT TO MY AUNT 73DON QUIXOTE 77THE WET DAY 84LAST WORDS 87KENSINGTON RHYMES[Illustration: OUR HOUSE]OUR house is very high and red, The steps are very white, The balcony is full of flowers, The knocker's verybright.The hall has got a coloured lamp, A rack for father's hat, And pegs for coats: a curious word[A] Is printed onthe mat.The kitchen ticks too loud at night, It is a horrid place; Black-beetles run about the floor At a most dreadfulpace.The cellar is quite black with coal, The cat goes scratching there; People go tramping past above, But nobodyknows where.The dining-room has rosy walls, And silver knives and forks, And when I listen at the door, I hear the poppingcorks.The library smells like new boots, It is a woolly room; The housemaid comes at eight o'clock And sweeps itwith a broom.The staircase has a thousand rods That rattle if you kick, And when the twilight makes it blue I rush up veryquick.The landing is a dismal place, The bannisters creak so, The door-knobs twinkle horribly, The gas is alwayslow.The drawing-room is cold and white, The chairs have crooked legs; Silk ladies rustle in and out While Fidosits and begs.The bathroom is a trickling room, And always smells of paint, The cupboard's full of medicine For fever, coldor faint.My bedroom is a brassy room With pictures on the wall: It's rather full of nurse's clothes But then my own aresmall.Our house is very high and red, The steps are very white, The balcony is full of flowers, The knocker's verybright.[A] Nobody knows what SALVE means
