A Happy Birthday Sonnet For Jerry

Rating: 4.5
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
I think I'd better not because you'll say
'You silly cow, you know I hate the heat.
It makes me cross and grumpy, and I'll beat

The living daylights out of those who sigh
And dream beneath a cloudless summer sky.'
How sad for you, the Aussie eye of heaven
Shines hot and hellish from around eleven.
By three o-clock you're panting in the heat.

No soppy, sugary sweet words here. It's the real thing written, in your inimitable way, for a lovely man. Told with humour and realism. A wonderful read, Allie. And I send my best wishes to Jerry. Love, Fran xxx
