No place like home! No place I’d rather be —
My bed, my couch, my deep tranquility,
My quiet retreat, my castle and private lair,
My ceiling fan’s constant hum, my closet of prayer.
Simple and humble things at home surround —
My modest space, where peace and joy are found,
Where rises love’s cool mist, and books are friends —
Ah! my home, the world’s rose-colored lens.
