A wooden floor, a wooden floor
Would someone give me a wooden floor.
My mouth waters just to see its gleam and shine and love

My sister`s house has a wooden floor

She lives far….
In A-me-ri-ca…
It’s the rage over there
It calms you down,
In this world of synthetics and cardboard and plastic and steel

Warm and porous
With the drums of heaven resounding in your head
Even  those creaks as you walk
And the cracks are welcome

Feels more comfortable
Assuaging your soul
It has a give,

They need to be refinished though not so often. This would have to be done if there be children who might spill or run….And pets, you could reconsider… Refinishing floors also creates dust from sanding and fumes spill out from a polyurethane coating.

It can be noisy and every family might not appreciate that. If you are not on the ground floor , your footsteps might be a disturbance to the people below. You could bounce this off by putting rugs at distances. This also oozes warmth.

These floors are not good in moist climate zones or regions.
