Dream house
The story behind the poem

The title of this poem is a bit of a misnomer because it isn't a dream house in the conventional, architectural sense - more a timeless vision of an ideal way of life. I was inspired to write it by my brother's girlfriend remarking that she could imagine me living in a little house with honeysuckle round the door and wandering round in a floppy hat dead-heading roses. I took it at the time as a compliment, which I'm sure it was meant to be, but circumstances have never afforded me such luxury.
