IS IT GOING TO RAIN?

IS IT GOING TO RAIN?

Forecaster tell us–is it going to rain–

From these changing clouds I can’t see…

Sunshine keeps peeking through,

It may rain with sunshine, naturally!

Sunshine and rain in the same place,

It’s been known to happen here…

Snow and sunshine we’ve also had to face,

Happening in that time of the year.

This weird weather is not so weird for me,

Wherever I’ve gone I see it lots of times…

At least one sees this weather has originality,

Perhaps it helps influence creative minds.

PREPAREDNESS SEPTEMBER

PREPAREDNESS SEPTEMBER

Preparedness in Massachusetts,

Those thinking ahead think it nuisance…

To propagate

A nanny state,

In common sense it seems useless.

Those folks who’ve lived here for long,

Find urge for survival real strong…

They don’t need to hear

Facts they know clear,

But not being prepared is wrong!

The State wants us to have a kit,

For as much as we can remit…

No one can trust

The weather’s weird gust,

The idea doesn’t bother us a bit.

If city folks need this reminder,

Far be it for us to be hinder…

That our lads and lasses

Live as time passes,

Responsiblity for their families as a binder!

SUN SHOWERS???

SUN SHOWERS????

The sun came out, I thought,

But it’s raining so I’m caught…

In dichotomy

Of weather you see

A conundrum conveniently taught!

I grew up in a place with weird weather,

The second-cloudiest in the country all-together…

It rained with sunshine

Which suited just fine,

As well as a Family called “Webber”.

New York City cousins were awed,

We didn’t think a rainy picnic flawed…

They said that our “steamed”

Hot dogs were a dream,

I’m glad they were charred but thawed!

Nearing the end of rain showers,

Sunshine has remarkable powers…

To renew nice thoughts

About our lots,

Before the next rainstorm glowers.
