There fell upon this rain-drenched land
A ray of light, a soothing hand
of cheer, of warmth, of hope and light
of future joys, such a delight
to the wind-battered peoples down below
who hid ‘neath coats, who struggled so
through darkened morns, and chill-bound eves
who no longer had the will to believe
in evenings soothed with the orb so rare
who sets lights a-shining in young girls’ hair.
This week, A Dash of Sunny invites us to write a poem inspired by Summer. My offering is a little tongue-in-cheek since we have had all types of weather here since Summer officially began. Today, I am bathed in sunshine as I write, but earlier in the day we had short, sharp downpours, interspersed with gloriuus blue skies and thunder as well!
Why not join in and take part? All are welcome and your host is a simply lovely lady!
