The Bench

IMG_6055

It has seen them come and go, the flowers, the leaves and a lot of snow

It has watched them come and play, Little kids from far away

It has let them come and rest, Old men tired of their quest

It has had them come and sit, Women with needles and yarn to knit

It has let them sit at ease, Chipmunks in search of nuts and seeds

It has had them come and perch, Grey juncos flying to the birch

Its worn edges and graffiti laden seat, hide a million tales underneath

If you have a minute to spare, the bench always has a story to share.

(Brookside park, Ames, Iowa)
