Wonderland at Night

(I was inspired to write this poem when I worked at Canada's Wonderland in Maple, Ontario.)

The night air was cool
As I strolled through the park
The rides whirled around
Their sounds piercing the dark

The crowds have died down
A small number remain
This is my favourite time of shift
It's nighttime again
