Though the sun doesn’t always shine,
Make the most of summer and you’ll be fine.
The storm clouds come and away they go,
But at least there likely won’t be snow.
Global warming sure has changed things,
Lockdown ends and with its easing,
We all need to take a break,
It’s been crazy, for goodness sake.
So why not take a seaside trip?
Paddle in the water and have a sip
Of wine or beer, whatever your tipple,
Ride a wave or make a ripple.
Take a good book and spend some time,
Immersed in a romance, fantasy or crime,
A lucid book is all you need,
To fly away from here at top speed.
Stories take us to other places,
Introduce us to different faces,
Whisk us through dramas and get in our heads,
So why not read novels while on your sun beds?
