TITLE: A Day Out at the Park

Picnic mats and baskets too,
Laden with the picnic food.
Families, laughter, food, friends, hark!
Itís a day out at the park!

Children running, dads are grilling
Ladies gossip, teens are chilliní
Big dogs woof and small ones bark
When theyíre playing at the park!

Itís Saturday and work will wait
Itís time to let your stress abate.
The contrast really is quite stark
When youíre relaxing at the park!

The sky is bright, the sun is too.
The pond is a glassy turquoise blue
The sandy edge has ripple marks
Letís go wading at the park!

Here where we sit the grass seems greener,
As we relax, the world serener.
Birds, singing like the lark,
Can be heard here at the park.

Families grow stronger as they play
And take time to enjoy the day.
Couples walking, will love spark?
While holding hands here at the park?

Itís that simple, can you believe?
Joy is that easy to achieve?
So go to your calendar and mark
A day youíll spend out at the park.

This is a fun and light-heart poem. It was definitely on topic. I had no idea there were so many rhymes fro park. Every once in a while, the rhythm seemed a tad off but that could just be me because I struggle with hearing stressed and unstressed syllables and have no rhythm anywhere in me. :) I thought it was sweet and it left me smiling and eager for spring to come back so I could once more enjoy the scenes you described. Until then though your lovely words will suffice. :)
