Here comes that rain again………….

That’s our summer over then,
The sun has been chased away,
Showers became torrential rain,
Despite what the forecasters say.
The gardens may need the water,
The grass being yellowed and dry,
No hosepipes allowed, a ban in place,
Water must fall from the sky.
As if we’d not had enough of it
Earlier on in the year,
Watching the river rising
And the boat roofs thereon appear
Over the banks behind us
Each swamped with waters new,
The wildlife in confusion as
Everything was lost from view.
Yet the gentle rhythm’s relaxing,
It aids in a good night’s sleep,
No floods likely aboard our boat,
Just as well, as it’s here all week!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I LOVE the rain.
    And this post, of course.

    • Hi Robert! I used to get twitchy in the house whenever it rained or was windy (potential flooding, luckily didn’t happen but got close, and damage to fence panels which was a constant!), but on the boat it doesn’t worry me and like Hubby, I sleep easy knowing we go up with the water level!
