Stolen Words: My Saturday In The Park

Stolen Music notesWords are my compilations of lyrics used to make a short piece of prose of sorts.  The lyrics are “stolen” from the various tunes I hear while I surf my favourite channels on SiriusXM.  Hope you enjoy them.  I have a blast writing them!

Sat Jul 4 15.  Written while visiting Marianne’s Park (how aptly titled!) in downtown Guelph, Ontario, where I live.  This park is one of my “go to” places when I want to write away from my desk at home.  Here’s a pick of the sign for the park.
