Walk in the Park

We took a long walk in the park yesterdayAnd for that I wanted to thank you and sayThat you turned the park into an enchanted placeAs we strolled slowly along at a leisurely pace. It was healthy to breathe all that flowery fresh airAs we walked along pathways and climbed stair after stairBut shortness of […]
