This was delightful, though the rhythm is off a few times. Great final line about wishing the mansion in Heaven was ivy-covered. Good job!
There are a few issues with punctuation and spelling, and I don't think the rows of asterisks are needed. But this is a very charming poem, and I absolutely loved that he wanted to decorate his mansion!
Great poem, good rhythm. Thanks for the smile. God Bless.
Cute poem. You described both settings so well, and with so few words - amazing!
Great poem. A mansion awaits us all one day!
Enjoyed your poem and the rhythm and the contentment of Dixon.
Though the poem reads nice and easy, with a gentle rhyhm, the contents hold a wonderful vision.

Congratulations on your second place win.

Marilyn, how did I miss reading this absolute jewel of yours??? Where in the world was I?? Haha! I dearly love this poem and can see it illustrated as a children's book even. Precious!
Your last line hit me like a ton of bricks.

It literally made me bow my head and thank God for what I currently have and for what I've been promised.

Thank you Marilynn.

You MOVED me.
