(Another) Summer

SUMMER  (On the theme of)

What clues will tell when summer’s here?
My calendar tells the time of year
Thermometer rises day by day
Flies and mossies won’t stay away

But more than these the traffic shows
Visitors arriving in their droves
Tourists spill onto the beaches
Market traders prepare their speeches

They flock here to enjoy the sun
Fill the bars with noisy fun
Then complain it’s much too hot
How they burnt last year, they have forgot

Bring it on, enjoy the boom
Summer will be over soon
They’re heading home to autumn rain
And we’ll regain our roads again.
