Now if the harvest is over / And the world cold / Give me the bonus of laughter / As I lose hold.
From ‘A Nip in the Air’ by John Betjemen.
I laughed yesterday for the first time in too long and this poem summed up my thoughts exactly. I need to take a week off work to read more Betjemen and laugh and lose hold.
