Last of the sunshine days

I’m sitting here hoping that I will be wrong
that this day in September will be
The last of the sunshine, the last of the warmth
in this place that I love by the sea

It’s October next week, the Autumn is here
but the warmth I am feeling today
is more like the summer I love and adore
and I’d rather have that I would say

The beach is a diamond, the sun on the sea
shining like never before
And me in my element sitting down here
so close to the Sussex sea shore

So I’m hoping the words of the old Mountain song
“Last of the sunshine days”
will be something I say several more times this year
in more of this late summer haze
