Poem of the Day

1 Comment

 

Sometimes . . .

 

Sometimes in the sunshine,

Sometimes in the shade;

Hiking through a forest,

Marching on parade;

Sometimes seeking shelter,

When the sun is hot;

Sometimes craving sunshine,

When the weather’s not.

 

Sometimes we are wanting

Warmth upon our skin;

Other times we’re wearing

What can keep warmth in.

When the weather changes,

We start changing too.

So it seems the weather

Tells us what to do!

Monty says: Thinking about sunshine, I began reflecting on how our varied experience of it constantly affects us. Using brief couplets seemed to underline the changeable nature of the weather and our response to it.
