Too Hot

Too hot to do the gardening,
too hot to do the housework,
too hot to go out cycling,
too hot to do a darned thing.
Nothing for it but to sit
and read a book!


Quote for the day – it seems apt for the strange times we live in:

“If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed.
If you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.”
Mark Twain

January Joy 3

Yet more rain but:
I have a warm fire to sit beside
and a good book to read.
What more do I need?

Second Time

Have I read this book before?
I don’t remember, start to read.
Yes, it seems to be familiar,
but now I have to carry on;
I find I’m gripped a second time.
