Summer in a day


Blazing the heat as though it were Greece
the sunshine on Sussex today
But a breeze from the sea kept the temperature down
torridity there to allay

The beach like a magnet attracted the throngs
To its shoreline they came in their droves
And pale English bodies grew pinker as they
got down there and shed all their clothes

There wasn’t a cloud to be seen in the sky
it was blue from dawn through to dusk
the air full of warmth as the nighttime approached
with a heady fragrance of musk

And all of this summer seen here in a day
allows each one of us to forget
that this time last week we were still in our coats
when it was miserable, chilly and wet
