Twilight

The sun drifts low into the horizon marking the end of the day and a twilight of sorts for an old barn and the small clapboard house that sits nestled beside it.  Sitting on a prominent corner the small farm is a welcome sight to anyone who approaches town and to many is a symbol of hard work and community.  Hand painted signs as rickety as the structures post a warning to keep away.  Others indicate that the land has been sold, and the headlines announce it as the site for a new library.  A range of emotion from anger to melancholy turn to acceptance that at least this charming corner of land, in its new form, will still represent a sense of community and a welcome to all.
