Too much Rain!
(Trois-par-huit poem)

Now at last
the fear of drought has passed.
They can now cancel the hosepipe ban.
We can put away our brand new watering can,
and forget any idea of a summer tan.
It’s never going to stop, it’s plain,
each day we get again
too much rain!

Weather forecast
(Nonet poem)

Our reservoirs are overflowing,
the fear of a drought is over.
Ever since the hosepipe ban
we’ve had more than enough.
But still it keeps on
every day
they will still

Raindrops and Rainfall

Raindrops –
welcome, gentle,

drought relief. Dismal depression,
flooding, driving, pouring,
dreary, constant
