No.8 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

Showers, maybe, cuckoo cries

and summer’s boots to fill

Twelves Months Four

by Jem Croucher

No.9 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months’ series

Here’s to the humble daisy
as April comes at last
Perhaps now the sun will shine
with winter months now past
Goodness knows, we need it
coats and jumpers need a rest
for now it’s time for warmer things
and times we love the best
