I was getting a new furnace put into my house last summer.  I have an older home with the big, old radiators that make a lot of noise.  When I mentioned that to the furnace man, he said he could fix that so I wouldn't hear the hissing, clunking and banging when the heat came on.  After thinking about it for a moment, I said I didn't want it fixed.  After all, it is the sound of my home.  It is a sound that I know and find comfort in.  Every home has it's own unique sounds that welcome you home.  This collection of poetry is a celebration of those things that make a house your home.
