The Heatwave


The heatwave screams
Put your hats on please
Get your sun cream out
There is no doubt
We have a heatwave,
So out come the sunbeds
The cream on your legs
The hat on your head
Sunglasses to cover your eyes
For those who are wise,
A heatwave
To greet us every morn
Young men in their shorts
On the beach at dawn,
Awaiting the sun
To top up their tan
To stretch out and laze
In the heatwave

At the age of fourteen he became an apprentice to James Basire the engraver and after studying at the Royal Academy School he started to produce water-colours and engravings for magazines. In 1783 he married Catherine Boucher. Some of Blakes earliest poems were written at the age of twelve and his first book of poems was produced in 1783 (Poetical Sketches), and this was later followed by (Songs of Innocence) in 1789,
