The other day while walking

Near the river before dark

I got to thinking how good it is

To live in Regents Park.

 

I walked past houses large and small

With gardens of all kinds

Some filled with scented flowers

Others with colourful vines.

 

I heard the sound of children playing

In backyards not too small

To have a game of cricket

Or tennis or volleyball.

 

I love the way that people

In the street say ‘hi’

Walkers with dogs, others that jog

They always have a smile.

 

And when I get back home again

To my cosy cul-de-sac

I feel refreshed and vitalised And ready to kick back.

 

So with a glass of my favourite wine

I settle down for the night

With a wonderful meal on the table

Life in Regents Park feels right.
