A rhyme remembered

It’s been raining here for days! From when I happened to say to a friend at the end of April, ‘we really need some rain, the farmers are worried they haven’t had enough for their crops’.

Be wary of what you ask for.

Now I remember the old rhyme we used to say when it was always raining ‘rain, rain, go away, come again another day’! It has poured down so hard today you can hear it thrumming on the kitchen roof and battering the windows… Enough! I want to go for a walk!

Raining

I decided to write a verse
Which might seem rather perverse..
I'm learning the ropes
For knowledge I grope.

And I might need a mediator?
It's like very heavy rain
It can be an absolute pain!
Storm clouds gather
I'm in a lather
Maybe I should write this again?
Is there anything at all to gain.....


Go back to the sea.

Along the pier

Walk out to Sea

Across the tide

My life to be?

An old man thinks

Of times gone by

Boyhood days

Of gulls and skies.

Of storms and fog

Waves rolling high.

A girl goes skipping

The length of the pier

In the arcades

Candy floss, she cheers.

A woman now

Looks back in time.

Worm eaten memories

Are lost in rhyme.

From young to old

Each person’s regrets

Are tied together

In their own nets.

Sea and sand

Cliffs and rock

All remembered

As the gulls flock.

Come in cat!

Come on cat

Come on in

It’s blowing a gale

And raining hail

A storm is coming

And you’re outside

I’ve called your name

But instead you hide!

Come on in cat

Don’t be shy

There’s food here for you

Through the storm, fly

Run in now

Listen to my call

Don’t stay out

Through the heavy rain fall!

Come in

Be comfy

Stay a while

Be warm and happy

Prodigal feline in style.
