MELO Round 1: The Little House...
My Entry for MELO contest with the poem The Little House of Lost Play a tricky but great poem.
About this creation
Here goes my entry for this round of MELO.

I was inspired by the poem The Little House of Lost Play, also known as Mar Vanwa Tyaliéva. I Was more influenced by some passages and did my interpretation of it. I think that the drastic change I did was the roof insufficient yellow tiles lead me to change that.

The poem is long so I'll post here the passages I got more influence from.

We wandered shyly hand in hand,
small footprints in the golden sand,
and gathered pearls and shells in pails,
while all about the nightengales
were singing in the trees.
We dug for silver with our spades,
and caught the sparkle of the seas,
then ran ashore to greenlit glades,
and found the warm and winding lane
that now we cannot find again,
between tall whispering trees.

The air was neither night nor day,
an ever-eve of gloaming light,
when first there glimmered into sight
the Little House of Play.
New-built it was, yet very old,
white, and thatched with straws of gold,
and pierced with peeping lattices
that looked toward the sea;
and our own children's garden-plots
were there: our own forgetmenots,
red daisies, cress and mustard,
and radishes for tea.
There all the borders, trimmed with box,
were filled with favourite flowers, with phlox,
with lupins, pinks, and hollyhocks,
beneath a red may-tree;
and all the gardens full of folk
that their own little language spoke,
but not to You and Me.

For some had silver watering-cans
and watered all their gowns,
or sprayed each other; some laid plans
to build their houses, little towns
and dwellings in the trees.
And some were clambering on the roof;
some crooning lonely and aloof;
some dancing round the fairy-rings
all garlanded in daisy-strings,
while some upon their knees
before a little white-robed king
crowned with marigold would sing
their rhymes of long ago.
But side by side a little pair
with heads together, mingled hair,
went walking to and fro
still hand in hand; and what they said,
ere Waking far apart them led,
that only we now know.

Hope you like it. This build is massive and my camera is broken so I had to turn to my phone instead

Very good crooked house. I think if I saw it on the beach I'd be a bit creeped out though! Good to see a build from outside the lotr/hobbit text.

I absolutely love this build! The house is such a great design and you've clearly mastered the many angles and shapes needed to perfect the look! Excellent landscaping as well, especially that tree poking up out of the house with the roots coming down the wall. Awesome!
