People smile and say gud day
Friends gather, some picnic by the river
Others whisper secrets
The man with the frown, mouth drooping
Out of place
He must have lost his mate.
Old people abound
slowly on walkers, some with shuffling gait
Make their way
carefully along the uneven paths
They can still delight in their surrounds
their sight river bound
to where the children play
laughing gaily on the sand
Lots of puppies,
Using the same paths as the many bicycles.
Fitness fanatics and those who only dream
of bodies they will never see.
This place is a nice place to be
One it seems that one can be
whatever it is they wish to be.
