Nine bells

by Jem Croucher

It blew nine bells again last night
But you’d never know this morning
As, when the night time clouds had cleared
A lovely day was dawning

The sun was bright, the sky was blue
and the wind had disappeared
Something of a respite
from the cooler day we’d feared

September warmth stays with us still
The summer’s not yet gone
Delaying start of autumn
though it won’t be all that long
