RAINY DAY IN SUNDERLAND


Another rainy springtime day

That saps your energy away

Another day of wind and storm

Makes chilling bones the daily “norm’

The Winter’s taken over Spring

Delaying flights of birds on wing

Today we really should have been

Down on the beach at Crimdon Dene

But we ignored the lure of sand

To spend the day in Sunderland

The Glass Museum became our goal

To fill our minds and warm our soul

And there in glorious sound and light

We felt our spirits soar - take flight

A visual feast of blowing glass

To make an item of pure class

Saw fascinating forms in fires

Blown, then shaped by hands and pliers

A tap or two then gentle tug

Revealed a glorious coloured jug

At times like this you’ll surely say

Thank goodness for a rainy day

Don Holmes

We cannot stop, because if a single one of these men were taken and shot, that would be our fault - Edith Cavell
