.6. On Barmy Summer Evenings

Barmy summer evenings
Beside a swollen lake
Swarms of tiny insect life
Advance on Auntie’s cake

Cowslips show their colours
Between a mat of green
While spiders spin their cobwebs
In the Hawthorne quite unseen

With tartan rugs to sit on
A hamper full of fare
Laid back to watch the clouds go by
Without a single care

The ripples on the water
As fish come up for knat’s
Field mice run for cover
Being chased by Auntie’s cats

Another chocolate muffin
With homemade lemonade
Preferred to buttered cherry cake
The ants had now waylaid

On barmy summer evenings
I now think of those days
When pleasures cost so little
And came in many ways
