The weatherman’s promise

by Jem Croucher


If the weatherman is right
about what will happen here this week
It’s going to get much warmer
and that is just the news we seek
For the waiting’s almost over
and in just a few more days
We’ll be heading off to Hampshire
to walk the South Downs Ways

We’ve been planning this for several months
and have collected all the gear
For the walking that we brothers do
around this time of year
Sixty miles (or thereabouts)
in a week with just us two
Up there on the open hills
Just doing what we do

It will be fun (we’re sure of that)
But it will be much better
If every day we stay quite dry
instead of getting wetter
And if the sunshine that is here today
stays with us for good cheer
We’re sure to raise a glass or two
each evening with a beer
