Thoughts of Summer
By Joyce White
The colourful dress of spring is here
Now that winter is laid to rest
It’s thoughts of summer that fill my head
To me the very best
The family will come to visit
During the kiddies vacation from school
Trips to the beach, sandcastles to build
Or a swim in the local pool.
Fish’n’chips, down by the sea front
No need to hurry back home
Watching the sun-set over the ‘Wash’
Having no wish to roam.
The warm balmy days of summer
Goes all too quickly for me,
They will all have lovely memories
When they spent time with us by the sea.
