Climbing trees
In Scarborough there's a place that is hard to explain.

It's filled up with children in sun or in rain.

A playground unlike any other I know,

But one of our favourites, we often must go.

Cotton tree forest

So what is this place, I hear you exclai

"A forest of trees" the children proclaim.

That's it you enquire, that cannot be all

But up in the branches our kids have a ball.

I think that I shall never see

A forest of cotton trees, ringed by a fence,

The wondrous thing is it takes no expense

It's free I confirm, won't cost you a cent

So on a tight budget it won't make a dent

a thing as lovely
Remember the days of your youth as I do

and if you're the same, then you know that it's true

that climbing a tree, just as high as you could

the best thing in the world, far better than good

as a tree
These simple pleasures are where we should be

So take your kids there and embrace a fine tree

I'll end this short poem, I won't be a pest

But nature for playing, is often the best
