Sunday's come and peace I find
relaxation here, unwind
emptying my busy mind
perfect with this sunshine timed

Saturday and sunshine here
Typical for time of year
This summer's child so full of cheer
in these four lines, made quite clear

Sunshine XII (tanaga)

Found a pool of golden sun
knew that Spring had now begun
and I'd once more found the one
proving winter blues are done

Finding rhyme sometimes is hard
Even though a seasoned bard
Often crossed and often starred
Words they come and none are marred
