A Petition in a Poem to Save St Clair
I"ll give you the first couple of verses- if you want to read it to it's end and sign, I'd be eternally in your debt. There are two weeks till the South Australian election. Every signature to this will make a difference to the Park's survival! The end of the poem is here: Garden
As World War Two came to an end, and those who'd lost Loved One and Friend
Petitioned Woodville Council that they set aside land
A place In Living Memory, the love for their Dead for all to see
and future people warned of the cost of War's Hand.
As decades went past, people came to remember
and the memory to always preserve
Crosses and plaques were laid in sad honour
Some scattered their ashes on St Clair Reserve
Seventy years since the locals requested
and parkland is valuable real estate
St Clair is to fall to a housing development
when never intended to suffer this fate.
