CHRISTMAS IN SUMMER
By Josie Whitehead
I’d love to spend a Christmas
With the warm sun in the sky;
A Christmas where I’d fondly wish
My winter clothes goodbye.
How good to spend a Christmas
Where the days were long and bright -
Where cold winds and wet drizzle
Were both banished from my sight.
I can’t imagine Christmas
With a barbecue instead;
With some warm sun on my body
And the blue sea out ahead -
But would it be like Christmas
Singing carols in the sun?
It’s bound to be like Christmas
With good friends and lots of fun.
