I think I may need to see an example of this one before I give it a shot. :)

Summertime and the Living is Easy

Summertime

The chill of winter slithers away

Leaving mud and everything in disarray

The flowers have hidden deep within the earth

Poke out their heads with colors and mirth

Such luxurious rays that play with our flesh

Painting us healthy colors, tan and fresh

After Blood Swan Moon creeps away

I beg to stay on the beaches of the bay

Laziness is my greatest attribute

Liking the towels, sand, and comments I was cute

Kept me there every summer day

While I hear the calls to come in and not play

Calls of work are never heard you see

Summer has a way of capturing me

Hilarity ensues, when an Australian speaks of Summer in the middle of the year,
For without recourse, they suffer a winter of wetness and misery, eyes easy to tear.
The world stands in the sun, ease days and with light hearts,
While the huddled masses of Oz, huddle in pubs and distract themselves with beers and darts.
Such glories as the open fields, and roaming mountains, are beyond them.
But for all the inaccessibility, of fog, and floods and storms, the yearning does not stem.
We dream of Summer, in our cold and wet skins,
As you speak of bright days, we wonder when they begin.

LOL @ Raven

You suffer so much with barbies on the beach Christmas day!
