A tree as big as a giant standing proud,
Lady birds cluster-

Canada goose spreading it’s wings like an A380.
A child stares at the river,
in his own world.
Do you have a care in the world.
A wind blows viciously in our faces,
Pulling us along by our eyes,
A mini adventure
in a matter of minutes.
Slow steady bus: brick walls, bridges…home.
