A Prayer for Bellosguardo

Our Earth is just a tiny place,
Suspended here in endless space.
From our moon it looks so blue,
Quite an unexpected hue.
Yet we here on its surface find,
Gifts which pleasure all our minds.
This special Santa Barbara town
Will never let your spirits down.
Endless advantages beyond all measure,
Create for us all a special treasure.
Yet there on its lovely eastern cheek,
Is one more gift that we should seek.
Our bird refuge called Andree Clark,
Add Bellosguardo and it's a magic park.
To dear Huguette we say ‘pretty please',
You would give our collective heart such ease.
A grand memorial to you and yours,
That throughout the years to come endures.
We'd remember Santa Barbara's finest park,
Exists through the kindness of a family called Clark.
