Park of Dreams

A poem written for the relaunch of a community park in Madison County, Green Township, Indiana


In Green Township's embrace, a haven fair,
Lies a park, a sanctuary beyond compare.
Where nature's grandeur weaves its gentle spell,
Green Township Community Park, where dreams dwell.

Amidst rolling hills and forests lush and grand,
A tapestry of colors, a paradise of land.
Majestic trees, their branches reaching high,
Whispering secrets beneath the boundless sky.

The park's heart beats with joyous harmony,
As laughter and footsteps create symphony.
Children's laughter dances on the breeze,
Echoing through the meadows, beneath the trees.

A playground, a realm of boundless delight,
With swings that soar, reaching for new heights.
Slides and merry-go-rounds spin with glee,
As children's laughter weaves a jubilant spree.

Tranquil ponds mirror the cerulean sky,
Where ducks glide gracefully, as time goes by.
Families gather, casting lines in the lake,
Hoping for tales of the one that didn't break.

Paths wind and meander through the green,
Inviting wanderers to sights unseen.
Couples stroll hand in hand, lost in romance,
Finding solace in nature's elegant dance.

Picnic blankets adorn the emerald grass,
As families and friends come together en masse.
Sharing stories, laughter, and food abound,
In this park, unity and joy are found.

Community events come alive in this space,
Music, art, and culture interlace.
Concerts under stars, their melodies ring,
Igniting hearts with every note they bring.

Nature's embrace, a healing balm it bestows,
Where troubles melt away, like winter snows.
Green Township Community Park, a treasured art,
A sanctuary where love and nature never part.

So let us celebrate this haven of green,
With grateful hearts, a place serene.
For in its embrace, we find solace anew,
Green Township's park, forever we pursue.
