Playground in my mind

I see a playground still today in my mind

Friends and activities you are sure to find.

A window to the world of innocence

Our wonderland.

From water fountains to climbing mountains

From ice rinks to skate, to water fountains by the gate

Today as I walk by a playground, sit on a swing stay awhile, I smile and realize it is a trip which has been long overdue

My sisters,  brother and I

Pure and unblemished

Angelic immaculate

On the slide we would glide

The swing made of wood, slightly painted of yellow color

Wholesome, genuine, comparable to a blooming flower

The playground was the place to be.

Children and creativity.

Singing our song all day long

Swing, swing up so high….reach the clear blue sky

My sisters, brother and I

Reaching out, extending ourselves.

Grasping for the moon

The air was lively, similar to us care free and replenished

Light hearted and nonchalant

Carving our names on the tree

Filled us with glee

Free.

The playground was the place to be.

It gave us the thrill , we reached for the horizons

All was pleasant and new. This is one place or adventure every child should do.

The world was so bright day and night.

Love and light

The playground was the place to be.


Gliding down the slide, was a great ride.

So small, feeling so tall, filled with pride

A sentiment no one can deny.


A scrape or two was nothing new.

The essence of time has now passed me by

I still see the journey through the mind’s eye

The playground was the place to be.

I’ll never look at playgrounds the same way 🙂 Another lovely poem from the prolific poetress Rita Marie Recine 🙂
