Blown down

There is a wonderful and very special place in Ely, it’s down by the river for all to enjoy and it costs nothing to visit.

The Willow gently weepsIt’s where Mums and Dads congregate and take their Children. 

It’s where Granddads and Grandmothers gather. 

It’s where friends and acquaintances and other people just pass the time of day.

And somewhere people park to eat their fish and chips.

It’s a lovely spot cos Ducks meet there too; under the shade of a lovely Weeping Willow.  And a tale or two that tree can tell I’m sure.

It’s where until today, children used to feed the Ducks.

But the Weeping Willow is crying for real, it’s split clean in two by the wind. 

I truly hope that half can be saved.
