With a Moon and Stars on Your Attic

Driving the long winding road into town yesterday, I passed as I always do by this big old house. Yellow house, dark brown trim. And a funky touch: on two sides of the house, up must be at attic level, is a big rectangular block of brown wooden trim around a window.

Window, a semicircle. And cut into the big rectangular block of brown wooden trim is a moon and two stars. Yellow moon, yellow stars.

Two windows with trim like this. Funky moon and stars surrounding a semicircular attic window. To me a little touch like that makes the house. I wonder if it was back in the sixties, or somebody from the sixties, who added that funky moon and stars touch to that house.
