Poetry Pleases: Parks

Hazel Dracup brings us another poem.

Parks are green spaces designed for leisure and for play,
Where one can spend an hour or two and bide the time away,
Some have familiar features like a bandstand or a pool,
Where children can have a paddle - one way of keeping cool.

In Huddersfield and district there are several described as such,
Some are large in area others not quite as much,
There are many defined pathways in between the grass,
Where many a courting couple has walked over the decades past.

The main one is Greenhead located just above the town,
Where from the War Memorial one really can look down,
Many parts have been upgraded and the outlook much improved,
With the main cafe area to the old conservatory moved.

Another one is Beaumont quite near to Crosland Moor,
Where walkers meet regularly and round the area take a tour,
Here the once redundant bandstand is now restored and back in play,
To its former glory that was popular in its day,

At Dalton there is Ravensknowle as a child I knew so well,
The Tolson Museum within its grounds has stories of old to tell,
At Birkby there is Norman where I went a couple of times,
At Holmfirth there is Victoria within the sound of the church bells chimes.

If I have missed out some others it is because I have not been,
I trust you will let me know and what can be seen,
Parks are wonderful places with trees and plants and flowers,
Lets cherish them for our grandkids so they too can enjoy them for hours.
