TPF / FRAGMENT {6 of 12} -- by BOKE

{TPF_6_01} THE BYROM HOUSE (not "Byron," were it so!)

{TPF_6_02} was purchased by my grandpa. (I was five.)

{TPF_6_03} The Byrom's had some money. Let it go.

{TPF_6_04} (That fits my rhyme and story -- might be jive.)

 
{TPF_6_05} The Byrom House front staircase swirled with taste

{TPF_6_06} my grandpa did not feel would compensate

{TPF_6_07} for heating costs of open air. A waste.

{TPF_6_08} He walled it in. The stairs he would rotate ...

 
{TPF_6_09} ... to face the rear and sealed it with a door.

{TPF_6_10} The bannister was turned to kindling wood.

{TPF_6_11} A hand-hold pipe installed. We don't need more,

{TPF_6_12} (At five I heard, but still mis-understood.)

 
{TPF_6_13} Each fireplace was bricked up and painted white.

{TPF_6_14} A diff'rent pull of judgement. Which is right?
