Wind and rain throughout
December, January, February
Buffeted whilst commuting
On my bicycle between
Seaford and Newhaven –
Only three and a quarter miles each way –
Felt double that distance, though!
Mild winter gives way –
to a colder early Spring
When the blackthorn blossoms
Winter’s holding on!
Like a visitor outstaying his welcome
Or a current pandemic sweeping through
The world – by the name of Covid19
Both make us keep our distance
