Starting To Feel At Home

The Ellis and the Moore are on the wall,
As are O'Brien's aspens and my clock.
Burnett and Breth will follow once the small
Detail of where to hang them's made. The lock
(A combination model!) is now set,
Most of my books are set upon their shelves
(Though not in any order as of yet!),
My insect chimes and magnets are themselves
In place. All this thanks mostly to my folks,
Who came while I've been sick to lend a hand,
And tools, and reassurance it's no hoax -
That really it's my house. They understand,
And tell me I'll believe it when I make
That first full mortgage payment, no mistake!
