by John Fowler, Gayton Summer's Nearly Over SUMMER'S nearly over Winter's on its way So soon the sun will leave us Bringing skies of grey Time to do our overcoats And kids can't go to play Mums will start to call them in Especially from the park You can hear them shouting Before it gets too dark You will hear the children groaning "Just five more minutes please" But mums know why they're asking It's just another tease Into their houses they will troop Tired and with a yawn Knowing that tomorrow There will be another dawn But soon they will be fast asleep In the Land of Nod Sleeping safe and peacefully With blessings from above by Ken Jones, Old Swan
