Ode to Herbert Park

by joetwo

For a hundred years you’ve served us all

From the oldest pensioner to the freshest babe

you have provided a glimpse of natures soft sanity in the midst of furious urban madness

A place to relax, to think, to meet friends in quiet seclusion.

This is what you have done for us

A gift provided free of charge

only asking that you do not intrude the peace of others

For that and much more we, all of us thank you.
