Rain or shine

It rained and it rained
and it rained and it rained
and then it just kept on raining
But although we got wet
‘most all of the time
there was seldom any complaining

The sun shone and it shone
and it shone and it shone
and then it just kept on shining
But though we hankered
after the rain
there was seldom anyone whining

Bramber

Bramber castle in the rain
just as dusk was falling
walking in the muddy moat
as the night came calling

The tower was quite ethereal
with moonlight shadow cast
An image we’ll remember
as a memory to last

October dawned again

10 of 12 in the Jemverse ‘October’ series

With rain today October dawned
Autumn’s finally here
but I’m grateful for the summer
which has brought us lots of cheer

Colder now the sun has gone
The green though still remains
The memory has yet to fade
The warmth still in my veins

And summer’s child still has a smile
for more is yet to come
Before it’s time to bid farewell
to the lovely warming sun

Pitter Patter

It’s weather for the ducks up here
in Nottingham today
Been raining hard since Sussex
as to here I’ve made my way

And though cats and dogs may feature
it’s the ducks I’ll mention now
as they don’t seem to mind a bit
and enjoy it here somehow

People though? Now here’s the thing
for that’s a different matter
with lots of them complaining
at a little pitter patter

Raining in August

This year we decided
not to travel to sun
but enjoy it at home for a change
But perhaps that decision
now with some derision
with hindsight, we should rearrange

For instead of the sun
we’ve enjoyed up to now
it’s turned cooler and rained every day
Just one of those things
that August it brings
which we’ll enjoy here anyway

Come Summer

This time last year
we were spoilt that’s for sure
As the sunshine it came
and the temperatures soared
But this year it seems
we’ve returned to the fray
For June in full swing
sees rain every day

It’s windy and frankly
the warmth could be better
and the plants that I’m growing
get wetter and wetter
I’m thankful for that
though I would like some sun
to reassure me
that the summer has come

Shower (haiku)

Caught, I am running
to find shelter beneath trees
Raindrops from above
