Sun Shines Brightly

The evening was full of surprises.

Sunshine had a brighter, merrier tinge

Streets were full of decent men

And every woman looked beautiful.

Signals turned green at my very sight

Youngsters gave way, most obliging.

The fishmonger gave a couple free

The coffee tasted so good.

At the corner shop, I read out

A letter in English

To the unlettered worker

Who listened joyfully, as I told him

His daughter will be home for X’mas.

Passing, slowly, I saw me

In the glass panes -

A happy, smiling, me.
