Happy Spring Equinox
« on: March 20, 2021, 11:52:53 AM »
On this date - theoretically at least - the day and night are the same length. 


As life gets quieter....

Bright sunshine,
bungalow windows flung open
in a surge of Spring enthusiasm,
An uninhibited old rogue,
belting out Wild Rover.

But what's happening?
Underlay and fitted carpet,
on a poured concrete floor.
Comfortable enough to be sure,
muffle the gleeful staccato rap
of the stamped chorus.

The wooden boards of the caravan floor,
or the thin lino in the house
used to echo my joie de vivre.

In retirement my life is quieter.
Guess I'll just have to sing louder.

That's a lovely welcome to spring, Gyppo.
If I had to live my life again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.
