It was our second visit in six years to Ivy cottage
Inside the kitchen I crossed through the bookmarks of time
What will the future be like for the kids?
At the top of the stairs looking down another bookmark
Will our next home look as nice as this?

Those thoughts and wishes have come true
All I can say Ivy is thank-you
Thank-you for your park of 1000 acres
Thank-you for the swallows who chased me
Thank-you for the future that now faces me
We have visited Ivy Cottage at Margam country park in Wales. The place and furniture has not changed, we have. The second time my memories flooded back when I was in the kitchen and stairs. These are 'the bookmarks of time" as they triggered the same thoughts and hopes from six years ago.
