Emirate sear in the extreme heat of the day,
Europe turns pale when skies are grey.
So much of life spent on this we speak,
A year, a month, much more than a week.
In the cold, the mind years for the sun,
In the heat, the scorch removes the fun.
Chilled fingers strike the nerves with pain,
Dripping brows think only of a cooling rain.
The world a sphere slanted to make a season,
For without this we perish, there is a reason.
Without the lean, the ice caps would melt,
Our earth wiser than what our skin felt.
Find some shade, cover your skin,
Our petty thoughts make life so thin.
Seek warmth in friendship, cool manner of life,
Enjoy your time with family, my dear wife.
