This is my favourite kind of weather
Rumbling, thundering, broody sky.
The rain and lightning raging together
Whilst it’s still warm like mid-July
Cosy as a wartime shelter
From the storm all safe within
As wind and thunder helter-skelter
“Free from sorrow, free from sin”
There’s no demand on me: “Get out,
Enjoy yourself, you stay-at-home!”
I love indoors, I am devout
In domesticity, so why roam?
Nibbling biscuits, sipping tea,
Smoking an E-cigarette
And reading some great book- for me
Almost the best life’s brought me yet
The very best though was when you
Did these things with me; afternoons
Snuggled together, listening to
The weather with its raging tunes
Oh, those long-ago afternoons!
