I’ve taken off my jacket
and left it here to sway
upon the rusty arbor
while the springtime breezes play.
I’ve shed my gumboots and my socks
my sweatstained ballcap too!
to let the sunshine play along
and warm me, through-and-through.
And now, I think I’d better stop –
although I’m tempted, sore!
I’m not I girl of twenty now…
I shan’t take off any more!
