She has since published many more books in multiple genres and for readers of all ages, but poetry remains at the heart of her work.

Many-Storied House is her fifth collection. While teaching aspiring writers, Lyon asked her students to write a poem based on memories rooted in a house where they had lived. Working on the assignment herself, Lyon began a personal journey, writing many poems for each room. In this intimate book, she strives to answer lingering questions about herself and her family: Here I stand, at the beginning, she writes in the opening lines of the volume, with more questions than / answers.

Collectively, the poems tell the sixty-eight-year-long story of the house, beginning with its construction by Lyons grandfather and culminating with the poets memories of bidding farewell to it after her mothers death. Moving, provocative, and heartfelt, Lyons poetic excavations evoke more than just stock and stone- they explore the nature of memory and relationships, as well as the innermost architecture of love, family, and community. A poignant memoir in poems, Many-Storied House is a personal and revealing addition to George Ella Lyons body of work.
