In this tropical steam
how I long for winter
who brings his cool mantle,
draping it gently over the countryside.

Six weeks then
we have a cessation of
ear-buzzing,
energy-sapping,
sweat-swimming,
restless-resting
heat
and
a happy oasis of
shoe-wearing,
breath-viewing,
blanket-wrapping,
cheek-chilling
cool.

Here we are seeing the beginning of winter (yay!).
