My Hermitage

House Arrest

My hermitage was built last century –
three score and sixteen years ago (they say,
who keep a file on the property).
Constructed as a guest house then, today
the Codes would not permit my place to be
so on-the-edge it’s just a wall away
from neighbors. Perfect privacy is worth
investing in my favorite spot on earth.

(Ottava Rima)
