Spirits Climb

Sunshine, spirits climb

Brushing pain away

Dark thoughts, of winter nights

And crushing thoughts held at bay


Red faces, souls warmed through

Hats on jaunty angles

Sunglasses shade squinting eyes

Wine glasses held by handles


Summer laughs, music playing

Smiling at passers-by

Bar-be-que smoke, swimming pool splashes

Happiness in the air


Summer is truly the time of year

When pain is washed away

Dark thoughts, of winter nights

And crushing thoughts held at bay
