Just a few lines on the weather we were having that year, the summer was a washout.
On a Gloomy Summer’s Day
The day was so gloomy and dark
So I went for a walk down the park
To give my head time to clear
And get a breath of fresh air
I was only half way down the road
When the clouds up above dropped their load
And soaked me right through to the skin
Oh heavens above, I just can’t win!
What a strange year it has been
So little sunshine we’ve seen
Sure we’ve not had a summer at all
It’s gone straight from Spring to Fall
Summer did not come our way
Except for that day, was it in April or May?
Or maybe it was early June
Oh I do hope summer comes soon
The nights are so dreary
And people so weary
The poor dog looks confused
And the cat’s not amused
Not a song from the canary
And the wife’s so contrary
So to the park, I’ll again slip away
Sure I might even call to the pub on the way!
