After early morning rain,
the sun came out again
warm on the face, this late October day.
From the office, I can see
sunlight play on the white football stadium
making it strangely beautiful.
Upstairs, someone else's boss is on the phone
Moaning about how horrid the day has been
'Raining cats and dogs and dark as winter'
I am my own boss, free to hear the robin sing
or watch the geese fly far overhead
against the bright blue sky.
