With dreams of sunburns and sandy toes,

When you wake to the winter wind that blows,

Through summer’s still opened window,

While my feet lie sadly in squishy socks,

And every door seems tightly locked,

My bags are packed and my cupboard stocked,

I count the hours, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…
