the sign says

Musing in the Park by Ron DeKett
Musing in the Park by Ron DeKett
Playing in or around
The river
Is strongly
Discouraged
 
It is not forbidden
It is not illegal
You will not be punished
 
The sign is not my mother
Spreading guilt
Like overflowing water
Brown with silt
 
It is not my father
A boulder
Beneath the white water
Chastising
 
The sign is calm
The sign is quiet
And only
Slightly
Discouraging
