Summer Heat - Poem by Ray Hansell

The days of summer
Can wear you down
In your sweat
You feel you’ll drown

No relief for days to come
The sun just keeps on blazing
As the days pass us by
The temperatures keep raising

You try your best to stay cool
The harder you try, the less you succeed
A trip to an ice glacier
Now that’s just what you need

But you know you must wait it out
For soon the hot spell will break
Then once again you’ll relax
A collective sigh you can take

But just around the corner
Winter is waiting to appear
With its cold, snow and rain
Then you’ll wish summer were here
