A brand new home poem which movingly captures the importance of where we live - with simple, elegant wording and design.
Our beautifully designed home print makes the perfect gift for a friend or family member moving into a new home.
The theme of the verse is all about homes and why they are so much more than bricks and mortar. They are where we can truly kick back, relax and be ourselves.
Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, the rhyming poem is 16 lines long. The gorgeous design is by Russet and Gray.
The print is available in a range of coloured fonts: blue, mustard, cherry or black (on brown card).
The print comes unframed, but we'd be happy to frame it for you. See below for details of our frames.
For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max 8 words) at the bottom of the poem.
The poem reads:
Home is where you hang your coat
A haven and a base
It’s where you grow and love and sleep;
A reassuring space.
It’s where you put your feet up
And do things in your style
It’s where you truly are yourself
And return to with a smile.
The look and contents speak of you;
(Your story and your taste)
It’s familiar and it's welcoming
A life-affirming place.
It’s more than bricks and mortar,
Than documents or loans,
It’s the memories and occupants
That make a house your home.
