Ode to Herbert Park
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.
