RAIN ON THE PANE BUT NOT SO PLAIN…?

RAIN ON THE PANE–BUT NOT SO PLAIN-?

On my window pain every morning,

“Evidence” that it’s been storming…

Although the pavement’s dry

The driveway drains nearby,

Did it come without warning?

No, it is a scheduled thing,

Lawn irrigation runs from late Spring…

The spray can be a pain

If it hits your window pane,

Open windows can be very messy things!

OVERSLEPT

OVERSLEPT

The light outside like a rainy afternoon,

His alarm clock…five:fifty-one…

He suddenly thought, “I’ve overslept!”

And got up on the run.

His wife was where she’d normally be

Any afternoon…

He’d better call in, frantically,

Telling work he’s late but would get there soon!

Was strange to hear his boss’s voice

Answering the telephone…

It was but Friday morning, AM,

Too early to leave home.
