Flip House

the sun was shining, on that beautiful day, 
so we ran outside in the yard, to play
and when we arrived, we were shocked to see, 
an upside-down house, made just for three
we circled around, but with no door in sight, 
we feared we might have to camp out ‘til night

just then, with a “POP!”, it became clear: 
the doors were all hidden, at the front, side, and rear
we crawled through the dormer and windows, so proud, 
up a house that just screamed “NO ADULTS ALLOWED!”

then up on the ladder we climbed and we climbed, 
to sit on a platform so nicely designed
hanging from rope nets, only then could we see, 
an itsy-bitsy non-stinging pollinator bee

“but where did he come from and where will he go?” 
we asked ourselves, and soon he did show
standing up tall, we had a great view, 
of flowers and plants, all yellow through blue

we loved our new playhouse for so many reasons, 
especially in summer, and through all the warm seasons
growing each day, our hobbies grew too, 
and with three special functions, it always felt new

but one day we outgrew it, as all children do, 
and eventually we had moved on to something new
just then an idea popped into our dad’s head: 
he decided it would make a fantastic garden tool shed
a few days later, it was right-side-up, 
he’d transplanted our flowers - even the last buttercup!
now every time we come home to visit, 
there are our playhouse and plants, by the thicket
