Our creaky, old and narrow stairs leading up to our second floor abode.
Looking up from outside …
And looking down from inside …
Stairs – A Toast
Here’s to the man who invented stairs
And taught our feet to soar!
He was the first who ever burst
Into a second floor.
The world would be downstairs to-day
Had he not found the key;
So let his name go down to fame,
Whatever it may be.
