Love’s Playground

Down in love’s playground
All relationships captured
In childhood amber

Here, giggling on swings
One pushing and one kicking,
Never together

Here, on climbing frame
A mad scramble to the top;
King of the castle

Here, swooshing down slides
Patiently waiting their turn
For such fleeting joy

Here, merry-go-round
Spinning faster and faster
Out of all control

Here, levered see-saw
Where, for one to touch the sky,
One must hit the ground

There, the lucky ones
Dusty knees in the sandpit
Building together
