Finding January Sunshine

January 22, 2014

and … City Bananas

City Bananas

We are city bananas; know all about cars.
We’re au fait with hoteliers and tourists and bars;
Know a bus from a taxi, there’s no flies on us,
Though we do grow on trees and we don’t catch the bus.

We’re here in Madeira, come cloud or come shine,
Though we’re small and we’re green, we’ll turn yellow in time.
Our relations are mostly in countrified spaces,
But us? We’re bananas about city places.

Hope you find – or make – sunshine wherever you are!

    Sunshine’s pretty scarce around here right now, but your delightful poem brightened my day, Celia!

      Thank you, Mary. Glad you enjoyed it. We’re now back to the cold damp January of a UK winter, but making our own sunshine! 🙂
