Let your troubles just float away; here’s a wondrous world
in which to immerse yourself. 
After all, it’s Summertime, so are you ready
to smell the roses,  or
Jimmy Rodda’s Purple Lilac?
Although you need to be careful,  when Marie-Pascale Hardy tells you
that
The floor is lava
and if perplexed just how Dead fish can’t be bored, l
et
Maureen Jivani explain, while Keith Moul can reveal all about
the
Drama Hidden in Clouds.  And yes, as Andrew Oram reminds us, 
The day is short
but for those of you putting your enforced leisure to good use,
you probably already know about
Sidhe Gaoithe. along with Attracta Fahy.
But,
Almost Blue, like Patricia Carragon? No need when there’s plenty
to keep you occupied, entertained and inspired, here,
in the latest issue of Orbis
