Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

A wee poem about Today, called “Today”

Today

Scotland is happy.
Heat.
Sun in bright blue
Above green.

Everything uncurls, unfurls.

Scotland is open.
Joy.
Leaves spread and bask
And we

Climb every mountain,
Cook outside,
Feel sand between our toes,
Sleep with our face in the grass,
Sweat, and drink water.
And we

Fill paddling pools
And splash about against a backdrop
Of flowers in bloom.

Brides can’t believe their luck today
Owners of convertibles are glad they are
And we

Are glad to be here

Today.

    Convertibles
    Inspired by “Today”

    A hot sunny day in the UK,
    The wish of even the most ardent moaner,
    Is not that simple for the convertible owner.

    You see, the convertible owner is a strange breed,
    Thought by others to want sun greed,
    But No, when the fearful sun dares to jut,
    For many that hardtop/soft top remains tightly shut…..

    You see, convertibles are bought for so many reasons,
    Not just to show off after the changing of the seasons,
    For some it is just the thrill of being seen,
    For others, it is the driving pleasure that makes them keen.

    On journeys for some dropping the roof is just a hassle,
    They just want to get to where they’re going with the roof on their little castle,
    But they miss out on such an experience every mile,
    Of the openness fun and happiness that can make them smile.

    So I guess, for the vain and lazy who don’t roof pop in the summer,
    Your attempts at killjoy are such a bummer,
    Be true to yourself and say your senses of youth and fun are gone,
    And get yourself a tin-top with good air CON ……..

  4. Ah yes, Scotland in the sunshine – lovely! 🙂

  5. It’s incredible how the sun lifts the spirits.
