For Clarice and Irish - The Weather Girls.

50 comments


Early Monday morning – risen with the lark ,
Looking out the window as clouds becoming dark ,
Sympathising with some friends about their awful weather,
Whilst enjoying sun on moors through fields of purple heather.

Oh says they it will not last – we have a plan for thee,
Little did I realise they were brewing more than tea ..
From each side of the Irish Sea they gathered up the rain ,
And sent it off to Yorkshire with my address and name .

Its raining hard the gardens soaked – should be glad of that,
Need to work and tis no fun looking like a drowned rat ,
Can see them smile their plan has worked – the weather here much worse,
In Dublin and in Blackpool I hope you like my verse.

Enough of this should get on – no reason to be whining,
For each dark cloud that rains so hard has brought a silver lining,
These heavy showers have at least done one thing so it proved ,
Left my van all nice and clean from bird pooh it removed .

The moral of this simple tale – one I think is true ,
Be careful who you talk to , for what they plan to do ,
They may seem nice and friendly and ready for a chat,
Dont be scared ..just stay prepared and dont forget your hat !

For 2 wicked ladies x – happy now ? Squelch..

24 Aug, 2009

 

Hollyeves, you put it so much more poetically than I did!
Arlene, yes please, have you got some to spare then? It would be especially welcome as I am having to water someone else's garden as well as my own!

24 Aug, 2009

 

Thank you lily2....

24 Aug, 2009

 

LOL Great Poem & i wouldnt mind some Spare Rain Plez if uv any left as its as dry as old Bones in my garden @ mo which is making Weeding Very Difficult :(

24 Aug, 2009

 

~we have this new version summer weather which usually means a few hours of sunshine and then a downpour from nowhere and then it is sunny again but far too wet to do anything~or lots of cloud but still very warm!
If someone can borrow a tanker i will send you some!
No good sending the clouds over as by the time they have passed over here they are all rained out!

24 Aug, 2009

 

A Tanker Hey ? Hhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmm i best ask around Arlene :) lol

It doesn't rain in Yorkshire
It piddles silver dew
We KNOW it's God's Own County
Folk like me and you....
The sun is gold in Yorkshire
The fog a misty haze
The snow is white as persil
..for days and days and days....
The August heather purple
Across the wind swept moor
Emily, Anne and Charlotte
Wait by the Parsonage door....
It's heaven to be in Yorkshire
I don't want to be mean
But I ask myself, quite often
Why the *&%* I'm in Aberdeen!

24 Aug, 2009

 

Brilliant Bs!!!
Is it National Poetry Day? So many talented poets on GoY

24 Aug, 2009

 

Pee ess....Aberdeen's quite nice, really.
;-)

24 Aug, 2009

 

~It might be nice in Yorkshire,that's what Alan Titchmarsh says!
but it's warmer down on Gower in our secluded sandy bays!

24 Aug, 2009

 

The truth of the matter seems clear to me...
Wherever we may roam...
The place we were bred and buttered
Will ALWAYS be our home!

24 Aug, 2009

 

im in aberdeen on monday overnight Bscott, my son going to check out uni- there, first time i will have been to scotland, looking forward to it :o)

24 Aug, 2009

 

Great stuff BB and all the other versers too. Very entertaining!

24 Aug, 2009

 

True ~which is why I love Northumberland!

24 Aug, 2009

 

It's an excellent university, Sanbaz, he could do a LOT worse! Him Outdoors did his Masters in Sociology/Philosophy there as a mature student ( that's how we ended up here 20 years ago! ). A very, very old university, and Old Aberdeen ( where the main campus is ) is delightful. He'll need some stout thermal underwear, though, it gets bl--dy cold up here!
;-)

24 Aug, 2009

 

Northumberland > Swansea? You're a long way from home, Arlene.

24 Aug, 2009

 

yes ive heard it gets very cold up there, he`s just done his AS levels, and passed, studying forensics, and history so next year A levels, then hopefully uni- im so proud of his hard work, something he hasdanted since being small, set his sights high,

24 Aug, 2009

 

~unfortunately yes~it is quite a trek!
Sandra~I am sure he will have a fantastic time~My daughter went all through uni with the same group of girls in Bath~they rented a house after the first year and she still has close bonds with them~they all went out to Capetown for her wedding and she was visiting one of them last weekend.~

24 Aug, 2009

 

how wonderfull arlene, i do hope joe settles if he goes with it being a long way, i worry as he will only just be 18 in the august and going for sept next year, so young :o(

24 Aug, 2009

 

Wont go on again ..thanks for all the rhymes very clever and glad some are having sun hard to believe one or two would welcome some rain ... well you know who to ask now lol

I thought what could I do that would affect Dublin and Blackpool ? Had considered a tidal wave up the Irish Sea but hardly fair to anyone holidaying in the Isle of Man ..

24 Aug, 2009

 

~that is a problem but maybe if he can't get home that easily he will have to make the effort to get to know his fellow students and settle quicker.
~my son is also an August birthday and he found it easy to come home on the train from Coventry where he was studying so he came home most weekends the first year ~we also found Coventry d**n cold when we went up on the winter but they just get used to it!

24 Aug, 2009

 

well he does make friends easy which im glad and also one of his friends hopeing to go there to which will help arlene

24 Aug, 2009

 

Sorry to hear your day turned to rain BB.
Arlene is lucky in Gower. I live a short journey from there but it's been raining here :o(
I suppose it's all these hills, They draw clouds like a magnet.

24 Aug, 2009

 

Thanks for that BB loved it all, could'nt stop smilling, sorry we sent the rain to you,but have to say its been quite nice here today as'nt it Sandra.:o)))lol.x

25 Aug, 2009

25 Aug, 2009
