A Walk Through Rowntree’s

Lucas Cowley, Age 8

Very quickly, I race to the place 

That is a gate as big as a giant reaching up to space

I walk past dogs playing in the field

As some of Rowntree Park is revealed 

I hop through arches, tall and grand

With long roses in dream land

I hear the splashes of the ducks in the pond

And smell the lush, green trees beyond 

Children laugh with yummy ice cream

Sunlight shines down in a bright beam

As I go to the last place

A smile comes on my face

The screams from the zip wire and giggles on swings

“Yes I’m in the park! Oh the joy it brings!”
