I'm glad so many people liked my little poem.
And that nobody mentioned that it is clears, not cleares... (My inner teacher cringed when she finally noticed!!)
Right now it's around 0°C here and I'm trying to get my head around the idea that it is HOT now where you are, Del. I've been online friends with Aunty for some years now, and every year she gardens when I'm sitting inside and looking out of the window and the other way round. And I've been to New Zealand and KNOW everything is upside down there, but I still find it hard to imagine you sweating while I'm freezing sometimes.
