This time last year

by Jem Croucher

This time last year in August
we were flyng to Croatia
heading Adriatic way
with a dosage of asphasia

In French I am quite fluent
Greek and Spanish understood
and we’d manage with Italian
I’m pretty sure we could

But this was the furthest we had come
save Turkey for a a day
Cruising Adriatic sea
in the best cruising way

It was a most fantastic week
and we loved the time we spent
on board the Celebration
as to Venice there we went

But this year we decided
a staycation was the thing
as the weather here in England
many hot days it can bring

So we’ll be on our beach in Sussex
with some ice cold beers and sun
still having quite the best of times
til holidays are done
