I visited today
A city where I would like to stay
Green and with a beautiful spark
A wonderful national park!
As a tourist I came
But a gardener I am
I enjoy street by street
All the lovely people I meet.
I saw most of the sights
Took part in the rides
But for nature I care
Some time I can spare.
I can hear the birds singing
See the trees in the wind swinging
I can taste the fresh air
Smell the happiness everywhere.
Community gardens I passed by with pleasure
Full of flowers, fruit and vegetables without measure,
I saw windows with plants in their own pots
Simply wee environmental protection spots.
The river Clyde I crossed with delight
Saw fish swimming to the left and the right.
Met people on health walks and cyclists out there
As traffic now has stopped to poison the air.
Around the corner, a wildflower meadow appeared
Butterflies and other useful insects cheered
I touched a daisy and admired the colours here
Had to take a photo of this special atmosphere.
Now I needed to share the beauty with everyone
So I decided to send a 3D-message for fun
With my wee super smart holographic device
I presented myself to my friends really nice
I said hello from Scotland in 2030
There the streets are litter-free and not at all dirty.
Great that pollution stopped a decade ago
Now people see nature they did not know
Could exist in this country far in the north
Thank you so much, oh mother Earth.
I then wandered along and enjoyed the view
Everybody can join in, there is more to do
It is great and not at all a pity
Glasgow is now a National Park City!
