Treasure Island

Michael Reston


When No One Swings on the Swing set


We go to the park when it's raining
And sit at a table and dream
When no one is ‘prancing’ near
We like watching sun's dieing beams

We go to the park when it's dreary
And stroll at a comfortable pace
When no one's crowding the walkways
The park's our favorite place

We go to the park when it's cooling
And light up a warm cigarette
When kids aren't making a racket
The temperature is never a threat

We walk to the park when lights out
And dark calls in elves to play
We like our park when nights out
And no one swings the swing set
