The house is full of ghosts today With happy going to and fro – They swim and sing and laugh and play This joyous group from years ago.
Aunt Bessie and the Commodore Two dear and gracious souls, I say - Are wilcoming their guests once more, Just as they did it yesterday.
A wedding underneath the trees, The bridesmaids brighter than the flowers, Wild Swan sailing with the breeze, Each day filled with such pleasant hours.
The house is full of joy today, With happy going to and fro – We swim and sing and laugh and play Today is one with long ago.
-By Gertrude Keller (daughter of Bessie Van Wickle McKee’s sister) from the Blithewold guest book, July 1953
