A Summer’s Day
 
Distant voices, squeals of joy,
Gentle lapping, seagull squawks,
Whispering wind, insects humming.
 
An old-fashioned rose, with an old fashioned scent,
Freshly mown grass, heady, sickly-sweet pollen,
Vinegared fish and chips waft by on a salty air.
 
Ice-creams and candy floss,
Crab sandwiches and crisp, cool cucumber,
Juicy, red-ripe strawberries and oodles of velvety, smooth cream.
 
Sky, iridescently blue,
Sun, vivid, vibrant yellow,
Grass, covered in camouflage.
 
The sounds, the smells, the tastes and the sights,
Cannot be matched,
They remain in the memory, to be revived,
By a sound, a scent, a taste or a glimpse
 
Then the pleasure of that day,
Is magnified by all the other days that went before,
And all the people who heard, smelt, tasted and saw.
