Are you back for the spring blossom
Are you back from the glorious cape
Are you finally bored playing possum
Are you done with your winter escape?
Are you back now the cold has
And the sunshine has taken its place
For I know that your cottage
Has almost no heat
Not a breath of warm air to embrace.
Are you back here to work
Are you back with your beau
Tell me what are you planning to do?
In my case I admit
I’m now raring to go
For I can’t say the dark evenings flew.
You say you’re in love
That’s a hell of a start
For it makes up for much else besides
While I wish you both well
If he’s really that smart
You’ll be one of this season’s new brides.
Will we see you this time?
In the flesh with your friend
I do hope this turns out to be true
For the brief chats we have
And the emails we send
Are no substitute for the real you.
