In The rain

With a whether eye I dolefully eyed the wet and chilly weather

Mm whether to go out today as prospects didn't look too clever.

 

The rain in train it's very plain would put off fair weather fellers

But proper British chaps will don a cap and twirl their umbrellas.

 

With merry skip and stiff of lip I danced like Gene Kelly in the rain

But here's the rub I passed the pub, well didn't, and here I remain.

Frank,

 

how I enjoy your playful ordinariness- a moment of yes, I've been there wrapped in a worthwhile playful piece- a nice treat!

The hearty will venture out. I just mentioned in Dedalus' topic that I'm quite content at home, especially in inclement weather, but I have been know to venture out ... for food!

Hi Frank,

 

What a lovely, witty piece to offset the winter grayeness:

But here's the rub I passed the pub, well didn't, and here I remain.

Frank, this is a very authentic and very British poem. The word/s choice and the way how you use them is that which makes this poem rock :) .

 

Thank you for sharing.

Hey Frank, I hope you've dried out by now... Too much fun can get soggy. Loved this little ditty. It has all of the elements to warm one's heart and turn up the corners of the mouth.

Hello Frank good to see you here. I agree with Aleksandra on the 'British' aspect especially the humour L3 with regard to the weather. Much enjoyed. Benjamin.
