but the spring is quite near
It’s getting lighter each day
and at evening time too
And though trees are still bare
there are signs of the new

Another day of summer

by Jem Croucher

There may have been a touch
of Autumn in the air
as it started pretty chilly
with my arms, as usual, bare
But when the sun came out

that the Spring’s not far away
when the sun will be much stronger
with more light to every day
