This is a poem I wrote some time back. The pictures are from our latest visit this week. YSP There’s something wonderful about YSP For a moment in time you feel ecstatically free Wandering through parkland that’s spectacularly undulating Where nature and human intervention are constantly evolving Holding back the excitement of finding new treasures Of intrigue and wonderment in equal measures Highlights for me were pieces by Kaws Pop art in the extreme deserving applause Silver pieces lovingly crafted by Not Vital Or colourful insights by Paolozzi delightful Then there’s the spectacular tree by Ai WeiWei A man constantly challenging not a…
