It feels like spring said one to the other.
It looks like spring said the other.
It’s going to get hot today.
I was getting used to winter.
Yeah, all that cold, jumpers and fires,
Snuggling up, under a rug, I enjoyed that time.
Now we have to prepare for warmer days.
Put away our winter clothes get out our summer ones
It feels like only yesterday I put them away.
Doesn’t seem fair, does it?
Well T-shirts, shorts and sandals, are all we need
Short-sleeved shirts and thin cotton socks
I’ll pull down the bags we packed them away in.
I hope its not stinking hot like last summer.
Those bushfires were catastrophic
So many lives lost, homes destroyed
I feel quite scared
I read it going to be a wetter summer
Maybe that will dampen the fire season
Best rake up all the leaves, mow the lawns
Clean out the gutters, just in case.
There’s so much do with the change of season
Preparations and change of attitude
Daylight saving and long, languid evenings
Walks along the beach,
Fish and chips on the headland.
Much easier to dress for,
Less is better I always say
Then it’s Christmas, breakfast lunch and tea,
Exhausting when I think about it,
But part of the change of season.
