Peter Hall (Sydney, Australia.)
Northern Hemisphere holiday time
The northern hemisphere summer sky
Is still bright at eleven
The middle of summer is an exciting time
As it lights up the mountains and heaven.
The smell of barbeques in the air
The sound of laughter and wine
The sight of people in their relaxing chair
Suggest it is holiday time.
The football is finished but so much to do
Six months of ideas light up
Who can we visit and where can we go
Time to leave winter's rut.
The coldness of winter seems a long way away
Enjoying the heat and the light
Time for the boy to come out and play
Before winding up for Christmas time.
