Soon Be Summer - Poem by John Carter Brown

It's quite peaceful here
Just sitting alone;
I've watered my seedlings,
They really have grown;
The wind in the trees
Makes a soft gentle moan...
It'll soon be summer now.

The robin's been watching me
Hoeing the bed;
Strutting around in his
Best crimson red;
Stabbing the border
And looking well fed...
It'll soon be summer now.

The blackbirds and thrushes
Are fighting again
On the lawn, where the worms were
Brought up by the rain;
I should be at work
But I think I'll refrain...
It'll soon be summer now.

I've done all my digging,
I've done all my sowing;
I really can't wait
'Til the veg' is all growing;
It's looking like rain again
So I'll be going...
It'll soon be summer now.

Yes spring was a beautiful
Time of the year;
The delicate snowdrops
My soul they did cheer;
But a better time still
Is at last very near...
It'll soon be summer now.

Written June 1995
