Optimists in Ireland buy an open topped car.
Rain is not far away, not very far.
Sun hats are rarely seen, rare as blue sky.
Nor sunglasses, don’t ask why.
Sun lotion is not a big seller.
If you don’t know why ask Joseph Heller.
He may never have been in Ireland, I don’t know.
Today the sun shines and the wind doth blow.
Okay, a breeze.
Leaves rustle in the trees.
Swallows fly in times like these.
I need to recharge my phone.
I rang a friend, I’m not alone.
I look upward, I see a kite, the feathered kind.
And blue sky, oh never mind.
This is one of the few days you can wear Summer clothes.
A day to remember, one of those.
