Willow Pond

This is a scene from years ago
Where local children used to play
All living in the locality
In houses or bungalows not far away
The Willow pond they called it
Known to each girl and boy
Where they could spend their hours of leisure
The freedom and fresh air they could enjoy
But that was before the New Town came
And crammed streets and houses everywhere
No consideration to local residents
Destroyed the Rural community without a care
But somehow this pond survived the change
And is now surrounded by a Park
But from what I’m told today
Not a place to go after dark
For the people that played here as children
Though age has taken a hand
It must be pleasing for them to know
The Willlow Pond is still on Hallowed Land
