"Little Houses"

more Barbados things to do
 
Traditional Barbados chattel house

Little houses built of wood,
Sash window and the jalousies
Fretwork filters dim the light light
To set the shade and cool breeze free

Little houses falling down
Rumble tumble to the ground
Patchwork, nailed and hammered fast
Loved and cherished to the last

Skilled and crafted
in precise scale
of detail like the villa grand
with pride upon the blocks you stand

Home where Grandma Settle lived
And where all 8 brothers grew,
living in a room or two
