Really Awful Weather or Not


The weather can’t make up its mind
I wish it some level could find
To go into spring
Or some other thing —
The changes are really unkind.

On Thursday we went to the pool,
As soon as kids got out of school,
I swam, without heaters,
For one hundred metres,*
Although I admit pool was cool!

On Friday we thought we’d repeat
This exercise — it was quite neat;
But wind came along
With rain and quite strong,
And so we admitted defeat.

And, weekend, the weather we got
Was soggy and not at all hot,
Out to lunch, our desire
Was to sit before fire
And our host got one lit on the dot!

Today all the wetness was past,
R back in school pool went at last,
But still far too cool
For me playing the fool —
Until summer’s die is well cast.

  4. It’s METRES NOT METERS !!!!!!!!!, It’s not an ENGLISH word to be mutilated by Americans et al it’s from the FRENCH. Nappy Bona came up with the idea and the system. It’s Metre and Mitre Litre not Liter and annoyingly frustrating for a user of the metric (how can that be mutilated) system. Please , please try and get it right.😦
