The sky at last has wiped the tears

that fell to mourn this day,

now sunshine sweeps the clouds along

to paint her blue upon the grey,

and birds hold words of summer in their song.

Well after I had written it

Well after I had written it the rain began again and stayed all afternoon, you could have had that, we already had more than necessary. If I knew which country you are in I would have sent it across ☔️ Many thanks Sue.

You can have some of ours, it

You can have some of ours, it forgets to stop sometimes I think, I hate hot and humid, I'd rather have the cold. Many thanks for commenting bishu. Sue.
