Roseville's Sonnet


My new hometown's parks are extremely fun;

The winding wetlands shine emerald green;

A famous eighties actress? We've got one;

There are several places to be seen.


Located in historic Placer County;

The Maidu Indians lived here ages ago;

Prospectors came next to reap a bounty;

After the trains did the population grow.


Our malls are not unique and look the same;

A Walmart, a Cosco, a Kohl's, and more;

Is the mayor or the planners to blame?

To figure it out would be a big snore.


Yet, I love Roseville even more than cake;

A great place! Not like pyrite which is fake.
