This Spring into Summer has me hanging
as if to say, ‘Wait – we’re not quite there yet!’
Long days of rain, holed up in my room singing
I have endured, shunning the cold and wet
and on days when the bright sea looks inviting
I’ve shivered by the shore bewildered
by those brave souls who think nothing of diving
into the un-warmed waters of the Med.
But now the air is warming up, I’m ready;
the water glints with tantalising grace;
on shore I can barely hold myself steady:
I long to plunge into the sea’s embrace
and never in my life have I so wanted
to Spring into a Summer so enchanted.
