Start of Day

She rose once more from the blackness

Night screamed silently as she left

Dawn jumped and leaped up to greet her

Knocking the birds from their nests

Flowers woke from their slumber

Opening petals to greet the day

Animals bowed to her majesty

For she’s keeping winter at bay

She climbed to the height of angels

Soft clouds cushioning her steps

She shone down on all of creation

She will stay there until she sets. 

Craving Sun



I’m craving some more sunshine and I want it to last all day

Certainly at least week or more, before it goes and hides away

I’m sick of British summers, soaked again and again by rain

I want to dine al fresco daily, that I can’t is a blooming pain

What’s the point in England’s beauty, I really cannot see

Flowing fields with flowers, seen sheltering under a tree

If I can’t go out and see it, experience and catch some sun

I’d rather move to somewhere else, without my wellies on

England bloody England, what’d you do with flaming June

Picnics, fairgrounds, lovers smelling flowers in full bloom
