That summer

That summer
was hotter than ever before
and so
were you

I sat at a desk
as you lazed
on the grass
short skirted
and flirted

The day before
it had been me
today it wasn’t

It never mattered
at seventeen
hot
is

HOT!

Author notes

I should have been working towards A levels but BLIMEY in 1976 skirts were short and summer days were hot and long.
