Like a Set

In 1944, when it was made,
the owner was permitted to construct
a cottage in the yard, on level grade,
and in the northeast corner it was tucked
against two boundaries, beneath the shade
of trees and vines, rough-cornered and good-lucked.
It’s like a set for filming or a play,
for only half its sides are on display.

(Ottava Rima)
