You have reached the house, and even though you are
dreadfully cold, your feeling of despair is easing.
A house means shelter, and the light in the window
indicates the old mansion must be inhabited.
People living here might be true hermits,
but they surely will be able to offer you a blanket
and with a bit of luck,
they might even have a phone you can use.
You go and knock on
ever so glad you have made it here..
