Fortunate Fellow

There’s a little dog barking
just in the sea
the gentle waves lapping
as he runs around free
People are paddling
and all having fun
Enjoying the warmth
of the full evening sun

The breeze is quite gentle
blowing in from the East
and all I can see
is a visual feast
I love being here
as it makes me feel mellow
and it’s not lost on me
I’m a fortunate fellow

Continuity

Continues the sun
Long hours over summer days
June into July

Long Weekends

The welcome of the long weekend
when sun is shining
And, with coffee in hand
I smile to the day and
realise that I am not working

New Day

In the sunshine
with coffee at the dawn of a day
One of the best ways
to start I would say

Joy to share

Glint on water
Sea of blue
You’re just like a friend I knew

Oft I came
sat for a while
That friend knew how to make me smile

Whiled the hours
slow away
Just sitting here on summer day

Looking out
with sunshine there
My true friend this joy to share

Born to the sun revisited

I’ve seen fifty-nine summers
and have loved every one
For back in the fifties
I was born to the sun

A child of a Thursday
I had far to go
But I’d hardly have guessed
what I now have to show

For I’ve memories a-plenty
and a lot more to come
For this child of the summer
who was born to the sun

The seagull and me

On the beach and a seagull
perched on a post
Him and me there
both making the most
of what has the promise
a fine day to be
one full of sunshine
for both him and me
