Alexandra Park in Pietermaritzburg, what a sight!
In my childhood, a frequent delight,
set on the outskirts of the city,
blossoming flowers, green grass and huge trees, so shady.
Weekends, my parents will take us to the park for fun,
to play on the swings or wildly run.
In my teens, my brother, cousins and I, planned a picnic,
to Alexandra Park for adventure and frolic.
We prepared snacks and walked a long way,
playing games, relaxing and just enjoying a great day.
Alexandra Park, a place close to my heart,
that is where my driving lessons did start.
Wide open spaces, easy the car to navigate,
without any road users to irritate.
Across the road, a Victorian cricket stadium so scenic.
we saw local and national teams play, that makes me nostalgic.
In May, “Cars in the Park” was hosted,
a display of vintage to sports cars, displayed and boasted.
Alexandra Park, a childhood place of happiness,
with fond memories, I do miss.
