L.O. I can use alliteration
Christchurch Park watches and waits
Suddenly, squealing children enter, laughing.
The rope swing giggles.
The slide smiles
The rope bridge tense.
Another child skids down the slide, grinding to a sudden halt.
The gentle thump, thump, thump of children jumping on the rope bridge
provides a steady heartbeat.
Steel chains squeak in rhythm, providing a welcome tune.
Christchurch Park sighs and smiles.
