The house that ...


This is a forlorn state of Lawson's shopping centre in light of the highway widening I have written about recently.


Words to walk with:
From the nursery ryhme The House that Jack Built, used for no other reason than it's where I remember first learning the word forlorn though I didn't know what it meant any more than I understood what a crumpled horn was.
"This is the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built."
