Sultry

Mid May and springtime evenings
with warmth still in the air
left over from the sunshine
that has been shining there

Walking through the city streets
A sultry feeling here
It is a pleasure knowing
that the summertime is near

And it has a certain nuance
you have to feel to know
when you simply have to wander
take your time and just be slow

Sunshine IV

Sometimes those sunshine moments
catch you unaware
when beams of warmth come calling
and find you waiting there
And you are in your element
as summer calls your name
The dulcet sound you’ve longed for
returns with life again

Promise in store

The daffodils are past their prime
but here at Horsted Keynes
The sunset comes at eight o’clock
and we all know what that means

It heralds Springtime’s fading
Summer’s waiting at the door
And warmer days are in the wings
with promise there in store

Sunshine III

Sunshine is my solace
and a tonic for my soul
It reminds me who I really am
and helps to keep me whole

Sunshine breathes new life in me
and I can never have my fill
For as a child of summer
I will pander to it still

Sunshine is my kinship
and will always be a friend
And I would be in heaven
if the summer had no end

A synergy born

The spirea’s in full bloom
with its blossom abundant
and the warmth of the sunshine
means Winter’s redundant

And I’m pleased about that
It fills me with joy
Something I realised
when just a small boy

That as a child of the summer
the heat of mid-June
from the warmth of the Springtime
cannot come too soon

I come alive in this weather
when the sun climbs up high
and the clouds are all fluffy
and blue fills the sky

So the spirea, when it blossoms
forms a synergy here
Which always reminds me
that summer is near

Afternoon delight

fullsizeoutput_1a31

Stained glass caught it streaming through
Late afternoon delight
The warmth, the sudden comfort
of this winter pale sunlight

And it brought to mind a feeling
with which I am in tune
the memory of the summer
and the strong sunlight of June

The Winter Word

If I were a penguin
I’m sure I’d think it nice
when all was cold around me
and the ground was thick with ice

But I am not a penguin
(although they are my favourite bird)
As I hanker after summer warmth
and dislike the ‘Winter’ word
