Tadpoling at Sefton Park

8 Nov

Tadpoling at Sefton Park,

took us to leafy lanes,

where the rich lived,

in fabulous houses,

their fabulous lives.

We’d bring jars with string

and little nets

from Woollies,

then spend the day

wandering through

rhododendron paths

and willow trees,

until we found

the smiling Peter Pan,

and there we’d eat

our sandwiches

with pond water hands.

As evening fell we’d

catch the bus back

to our little terraces,

teeming with people.

Like tadpoles in a pond.
