Castellated gallery of white, iron-cast pavilions – one atop another,
shine bright on a Scottish spring afternoon.
Clocks, rockets, asteroids, mummies and totem poles;
fish circle the children, pennies circle the pool.
Whale bones suspended disbelieving – no dinosaur stolen here!
Buttons to press; costumes to dress, and the Antonine Guard recruits a boy!
The polar bear silent and sad. So sad.
