A City Park

by Emily Page

Midday sun beats down,
Warming through winter wool.
Work weary footsteps lead me away
Far from the hustle.

Tall buildings embrace me
A moment in the shadows.
Eyes blind a while, adjusting to bright light.
Sunshine filtering through gentle trees.

A warm bench,
Wood polished and worn
There have been others before me.
Trees rustle gently in the warm breeze,
The sweet sound of birdsong
Mingles with the laughter of children.

A bell rings. Playtime is over.
I sit, still and warm and resting,
Alone with my thoughts at last.
