Ode to the green mound

You were my favorite waterfront feature
A green mound, perfectly formed
A crescent of lawn
A hilltop of solitude
A spot to sleep in the sun
A challenging shortcut
An excellent place to watch the world pass by
A stadium for fireworks
A city retreat

Now you are a tamed piece of flat
And a lagoon shaped hole

I miss you
