Windows painted in red,
Balconies arranged with fresh flowers.
A new start of a new season,
Lovely view from her office corridor.
Guessing is over on who is going to inhabit
The old locked house.
Paints on the wall indicated youth and dreams,
Life after winter.
Forecasts can go wrong,
Grey-haired couple owned it now.
Across the road bubbled gaiety.
Her office space looks lifeless now.
