Spring Into Summer - Poem by Denis Martindale

Some believe that there's a heatwave
That's heading for us soon!
That prophecy is somewhat brave,
Yet it would be a boon!
Spring into Summer, suddenly,
No duffle coats in sight!
If you're like me, you'll wait and see,
We could get snow tonight!

But if a heatwave's on its way,
I'll get the icecreams out!
Like you, I'll shout, 'Hip, hip, hooray! '
And cast off all my doubt...
I'll fill the paddling pool again,
I'll even mow the lawn!
I'll treat myself to cool champagne
Until the last drop's gorn...

I'll paint that fence as good as new,
I'll paint the wall as well...
I'll praise the Lord and say, 'Thank You! '
My scoffing to dispel...
Yes, I'll write it in my diary!
I lived to see the day...
The temperature was 83
Before the end of May!
