With rain and shine a beauty

All hail to lighter evenings
with British Summer Time
A promise waiting in the wings

white replacing yellow
with snowfall all around

Some days are diamond
the sea and the sky
azure blue with the sun
up there on high

Some days are damond

when a sunshine embrace
brings me in from the cold
