Days like these

Days like these

On days like these
             we forget who we are
and where we are too :
             on these early days of summer
with unbroken blue skies
             and hardly a breath of wind
and everyone out on the streets
             so much more relaxed
and the parks filled
             with sunbathers and roller-skaters
and the rivers lined with paddlers
             and the air ringing
with the chimes of ice cream vans
             and every flower bed alive
with the vibrant colours
             of fresh blooms
and winter long forgotten
             and it’s so good to be alive
and not to have to think
             too hard for a change
