Nothing is hidden from the sun, it shines through and touches everything in its path. It gets into all those dark corners and lights us up. Be the sunshine on a cloudy 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.
Late summer sun, still shining as bright.
The days are shorter, soon comes the night.
You saw us through, with buckets and spades.
Down by the seaside, kids paddle and wade.
Melted the ice creams, warmed fruit to ripen.
You pulled out all stops, our days you did lighten.
Soon you must travel, to Summer’s beyond.
But know when you do, you’ll be missed when gone.
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
