Sunny Monday

On a sunny Monday morning you aren’t sure of how you feel,
For the weather makes you happy but the Monday blues are real.
Should you skip down to the river, share your lunch with swans and duck?
Or stay bashing at your problems while you curse your lack of luck.

It’s a sunny Monday morning, there are crocuses and such,
But the traffic makes me gloomy when it drones around too much.
There’s a blackbird getting fruity with his misses in a tree
But there’s hours of work still looming till the moment I am free.

It’s a sunny Monday morning and I think the smiles will win,
For the way the ducks are acting it would seem Spring must begin.
When tomorrow turns out rainy I’ll resume my normal gloom,
But this sunny Monday morning I am grinning round the room.
