May’s almost passed
will soon be June
Midsummer’s day
will be here soon
My month of birth
a summer’s child
in fifty-nine
the sunshine smiled

So bring again
the sultry days
of naked toes
and warming haze
of lapping waves
down on the beach
the beach-hut there
in easy reach

Long days of sunshine
clear blues skies
sweet lavender
and butterflies
This time of year
my apogee
revered in this

    I too arrived
    mid way through June,
    but forty-nine;
    ten years too soon!

    ‘Twas November
    When I appeared
    Head of hair
    Like inverted beard
    Great, Jem. You almost broke into a sonnet!
