Playground

Ode to a Playground

Ode to a playground
by Brian F Kirkham

It’s all covered up now

buried in mortar and brick

the price of progress

A square plot

an oasis of fun

set in a Salford Square

Swings See-saws and Stumps

Situated by Streets

Settled by Kids

Bonbons and Ten Penny Mixes

Shared on a Seat

By friends down the street

Imagination Boundless

as Young minds they play

Passing the day
