Spot any of Steve's books in the library?
A place where time flows no more,
clock stopped at ten to four.
A house and estat to be enjoyed,
its purpose redeployed.
Rooms to be viewed,
with history imbued.
No longer a place lived in,
but a clear picture of what has been.
Then in the attic rooms a surprise,
a delight for the eyes.
For this is one of those rare places,
which brings delight to visitors faces,
for convention it circumvents,
as two rooms that look like tents.
Then in the grounds are two more surprises,
restilting from their owner's travel, one sumises.
Bringing a sense of peace is a Japanese garden,
even the Egyptian objects one can pardon.
A visit to this place , is well worth your time;
even though the stable clock does no longer chime.
