Stanley Park

Take a trip to Stanley Park,
When at the end of your tether,
It's a fine place to visit,
Whatever the weather.

Walk along the winding path,
Or stroll through the small woods,
The scenery that surrounds you,
Is equally as good.

Neatly arranged flower beds,
Follow the path all the way,
That cuts through a grass area,
For relaxing or play.

Get a sense of inner peace,
A feeling to which you just couldn't harden,
Enjoy the tranquility of the,
Charles Osborn garden.

Take a seat on one of the benches,
Away from it all you want to be,
And just glance over towards,
The Ornemental Cherry tree.

Walk through its gates,
Another spot you must reach,
It also serves as a,
Scenic shortcut to the beach.

Make the most of your day,
Any time right up until dark,
Just gather up whatever and,
Take a trip to Stanley Park.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
