This Summer we had much rain.

Not unusual in our water soaked clime.

But in Summer you'd think the Sun we'd gain.

We're entering Autumn soon, but I hope the rain stays away and it is fine.

Rain is so inconvenient, wet, cold, cloying to clothes, in the main.

And saturates footwear which is mine.

Wellingtons/Galloshes are the best to ward off the rain.

Let's get out of the rain and go and dine?

Rain makes me eat; I'm bound to gain.

What a good idea too; I'll have wine.

Some rainy days aren't so rainy after all.

Especially if you meet someone in the rain in fall.

We Get Snowed In


The roads clogged

with winter

we try to unburden

the sidewalk

but the driveway

leads nowhere.


The shrubs bend,

the trees wait

for a breeze

to uncloak their

newly knit sweaters.


The fire roars inside,

the furnace temp

nudged up a bit

more. Break out

the games, we

will be here

for a day longer

at least.
