Clare Glynn Chitan at Ormston House

What memories linger with in these walls

What spirits visit and walk these halls

Stairs and rooms, memories from years to year

Spirit of joy and sorrow ring out in the air

 

Secrets, whispered from room to room

 Telling of births and deaths, now silent as the tomb.

Laughter and tears mothers voices children’s calls.

Lingering memories clinging to the walls.

 

Empty spaces, resonating sounds.

Old familiar Ormston House, Prominent in our town.

Little do we know what secrets it holds?

While we walk on Patrick Street, we will not be told.

– Clare Glynn Chitan
