Public Place


In a world that spins

where some lose and some win

fortunate are those who live

where public spaces

are places

to gather and play,

families and friends,

reunions and celebrations,

birthdays and graduations,

fun in the sun and snow,

splashes and boating,

sprinting fast and cruising slow

snorkel, fish, canoe, swim

summer places for every whim

and also those for winter’s dim-

zoom through snow

or down a slope

parks for us give us hope

everyone welcome

everyone plays

summer or winter

fall or spring:

out in nature

hear its song

feel its grace

understand its force

in your public place.
