You’ll always find me smiling

You’ll always find me smiling
when the sunshine shows its face
Particularly in its summer warmth
with evidential grace
I’ll find a little corner
where I’m sheltered from the breeze
and spend some peaceful moments
‘Cos they’re always there to seize

And even when it’s cooler
and the autumn cools things down
The sunshine brings a smile
(always better than a frown)

Nine bells

It blew nine bells again last night
But you’d never know this morning
As, when the night time clouds had cleared
A lovely day was dawning

The sun was bright, the sky was blue
and the wind had disappeared
Something of a respite
from the cooler day we’d feared

September warmth stays with us still
The summer’s not yet gone
Delaying start of autumn
though it won’t be all that long

Sunshine Bright

Dawning bright, I know you well
you are a friend of mine
Always welcome, never shunned
the warming bright sunshine
I smile upon your dazzling face
I squint into your glare
And always come alive a bit
whenever you are there

Caryopteris

With delicate blue flowers
Caryopteris in the sun
Brings a certain cheerfulness
Enjoyed by everyone

And though Autumn’s round the corner
The beauty here displayed
Retains a bit of summer
As the green begins to fade

Sunshine back

The week had rained consistently
But when Saturday morning came
Drying all the puddles up
The sunshine came again

And it was very welcome
As it brought with it a smile
So I really hope it hangs about
And stays with us a while

You can never have too much yellow

You can never have too much yellow
for it’s the colour of the sun
And I’d challenge you to disagree
it’s not loved by everyone

For me that’s going to be the case
for as long as I can see
For it’s synonymous with summer
Where I so love to be

Down by the seaside

Spent two hours on the water
beyond the outer buoy
Half a mile or so from shore
moments of pure joy
A gentle swell from rising tides
bobbed me around a bit
Watching sailors from the club
out there enjoying it

Then later when the sea lay still
to the beach I then repaired
And soaked the sunshine up a while
as many others shared
Bank holidays are made for this
for times of idle pleasure
Made perfect by a gleaming sun
for all our seaside leisure
