Summer Daze

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?

  1. This is the perfect poem for this weekend as we’re experiencing summer in full force where I am. Record heat waves have had me debating on what to do with my days. Now I think picking up a good book is the perfect answer 🙂

  2. Seriously, a good book and a hammock or sun bed and a cold drink in my hand (usually beer) is all I need to make me happy.
