FOUR SEASONS ~ In One Day we often say

But it really happened unto me ~ One Day in MAY


MORNIN' SIX AM ~ as cold as death ~ WINTER 

FROSTY cold outside ~ only THIRTY EFF !


AMEN the SUN was shinin'  TEN AM

It began to feel like SPRING again !


The AFTERNOON ~ Brother SUN rose Higher

To over SIXTY EFF ~ it did aspire !


A DAY that started as a BUMMER ~ had morphed

From WINTER ~ then through SPRING to SUMMER !


BUT then down came the RAIN ~ And

Wind & Hail ~ it's AUTUMN weather once again !


Glad to be back and WARM ~ inside my HOUSE



Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Yours BRIAN

    Was that our Summer for this year? That day in May? Hope not! But you were not referring to the bank Holidays (surprisingly?!)
    I read a bit of Daniel. They chose some captives who, among other things, understood science!


      Thanks STEVE ~ This year in ESSEX we are being spoiled (apart from the ubiquitous Hank Bolidays) oodles of sunshine and very little precipitation ! This weekend looks good & next week ! Yes Daniel and the three Musketeers ~ Shadrak ~ Meshak and Abed- Nego were very clever and both Lion Proof & Fire Proof ~ well ahead of their time scientifically ! DANIEL is an awesome Book ~ some great prophesies. Note that the Bible vindicates its miracles ~ The Men who opposed Daniel were thrown in the Den and consumed as were the Men who threw S M & A into the furnace ~ they were burned to DEATH ~ awesome ~ Yours BRIAN

      Sounds like typical British weather to me.
      "How do know what the weather is doing?"
      "Look out the window!"

      Good write Brian. Have a listen to this version of Vivaldi's Spring

      or try this one

      I have them both plus a normal version and the Nigel Kennedy version - I have seen him perform that live - wonderful.

        Thanks for your comment and the links ~ will play them ! Love NIGEL ~ he is of my era so a bit too unconventional foe some ~ but he is a virtuoso violinist so most Classicists forgive Him. My niece is a grade 5 violinist and adores Nigel and to her he is an INSPIRATION ! Thanks for your comments ~ Yours BRIAN The Weather for the weekend ~ and next week in Essex ~ promises to be Sunny & Dry ~ soon be the end of Term !

        Crazy weather can happen in the day of May. I enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Thanks HEART ~ Yes especially in May ~ it can revert to winter and then jump forward to Summer / Autumn in 24 hours. Still the BBC 15 day forecasts are pretty reliable especially if I'm leading a Field Trip in the Mountains ! Pleased you enjoyead it ~ Yours BRIAN

                Ahhhhhhh OREGON ~ Nice State but far North on the West Coast ~ Passed through on the way to Seattle to visit ALASKA and the Inside Passage ! I'm not surprised you get a mix of Weather ~ Nice State to be in ! 84 F is hot ~ verging on 30 C which is very hot in the UK ~ for temp conversion we remember that 28C is 82F ~ OK Older Brits still tend to think in FAREINHEIT 60 is WARM ~ Coat off ~ 70 is very WRAM ~ Shirt off ~ 80 is HOT ~ SPEEDOS & BIKINIS ON ! Pleased you enjoyed the POEM and that it struck a CHORD ~ Yours BRIAN

                British weather is always precocious and your poem outlined the surprises it gives so well Brian. Thanks for the honest reminder of our weather's inclemency.
