Love Fifteen

Summer days and Wimbledon

Easy on the eye

Tennis whites and strawberries

Drop shots and Hawkeye

Sunny days a little rain

Green and pleasant land

A gathering of talent

Applause ripples from the stand


And after that to Scotland

The Old Course beckoning

The breezes of St Andrews

Golfers in full swing

The sand dunes and the bunkers

The Road Hole near the end

And crowds to greet a champion

The final green his friend


And all the while I sit here

Cosy sofa-ing

Happy in my viewing

No need for travelling

Swimming now to keep me fit

Food comes to my door

While others die or flee from home

And the stupid game of war
