My World is scattered with Playgrounds where the little children play.
We see them roughing-and-tumbling on any sunny day.
They're up and down and round about, they're running free and wild
Enjoying life as, we would hope, can any little child.
But there are Special children whose lives are more constrained,
Whose childish minds are fuddled or whose little limbs are chained,
Chained by the power of illness, or an accident of birth.
Their fate is the most difficult of any child on earth.
Speers Point Children's Playground is designed for such as these.
Everything's created to put young ones at their ease.
Special swings and seesaws, special ways to play
When seeing may be difficult or chairs get in the way.
Nor is this park restricted to problem clientele;
Healthy little children are welcomed there as well.
They learn to play together and co-operation rules.
Surely this Special Playground is the very best of schools.
How wonderful a thing it is for us, the visitors, who see
Children who might be tethered, experiencing 'free'.
