    Arrow Love poems involving doors, windows, nails, etc

    Yes, this is a strange post but I am looking for love poems that have references to doors, windows, fireplace/hearth, garden, floor, nails, ceiling...heck, even a basement! Why would I want this? Because I'm preparing a surprise wedding gift for my friend and their new home. I know NOTHING about poetry, so any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Jennifer

    The House by the Side of the Road

    There are hermit souls that live withdrawn
    In the place of their self-content
    There are souls like stars that dwell apart in a lonely firmament
    There are pioneer souls that blaze the paths where highways never run
    But let me live in a house by the side of the road
    And bid welcome to everyone.

    Let me live in a house by the side of the road
    To greet people as they go by,
    They are good, they are bad, they are weak, they are strong, wise, foolish, so am I.
    But I would not sit in the scourner's seat
    Nor hurl the cynic's shun
    Let me live in a house by the side of the road
    And bid welcome to everyone.

    I know there are brook-gladdened meadows ahead
    And mountains of wearisome height
    That the road passes on thru the long afternoon
    And stretches away to the night
    And still I rejoice when travelers arrive
    And weep with the strangers that moan
    I will not live in my house by the road
    Like someone who dwells alone.

    To my love, I thee prose:
    Roses are red, violets are blue, this basement is dank and musty smelling, just like you.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
