Mikado at Trevarno

What a shame Trevarno was forced to close this year,
but that seems to be the way of the world, I fear.
Yet I remember really happy visits there
and I wonder how their animals will now fare?

There were peacocks wandering all around the grounds,
black headed swans, otters and pheasants in compounds.
What will happen to them now the place has been sold?
Their daffodil collection’s going, so I’m told.

I will never get to see those gardens again.
The new owners will not let us, the public, in.
Thank goodness I took lots of pics when I went last
so I can gaze on the beauty of what is past.

One year I went there on a visit with my friend,
and we were just about to go home at the end
of a pleasant lunch-time wander around the ground,
when we noticed a stage was being set around.

We bought some tea and cakes and sat upon a seat
and soon realised that we were in for a treat.
An open air performance of the Mikado
meant we’d never forget our trip to Trevarno.
