A Wish for the Day

by: Guildford Windley

A wish for the day
___________________________________________
Kiss the winter day’s goodbye
Let the warmth of the Sun come in
Gentle become the winds
Not the blow of cold air upon the skin
May the days get longer and the nights warmer
Oh the joy of a day without snow or rain
Yes, I know we need them so
But not again until the calendar has turned so many pages, do the snow and rain need to come
First, let me bask in the warmth of the Sun
Let there be just enough breeze to cool my face
Oh spring bring out your flowers
Oh summer bring out those lazy days
Put that snow shovel in an out of the way corner
Let it rest there for another day
Bags of sand that blocked overflowing water
Now empty in the sandbox so the kids have a place to play
Oh yes there is a place for winter
But I wish not to be there, for several months to come
For now, I wish to see
A time of fun within the Sun
To go out in shorts
To take long walks
On beaches and forest trails
With the hot sun beating down
Those days when you can’t move
For the heat is oppressive
Sweat pouring down
No wind to cool you down
Yeah, now I remember summer
The hell with this
Yes, let the cool fall breezes come in!
