April Showers

On with my coat and walking shoes,
the dogs are ready to go,
but the sky has turned a dark shade of grey
and it looks like it might snow.
Here comes the rain –
and here I’m staying!

Off with my coat and settled down again
to wait for the shower to stop.
It’s now raining cats and dogs, and even hail
has caught us all on the hop.
Down comes the rain –
no walk yet, it’s plain.

Now here’s the sun, I guess I’ve got time
to spin them round the park.
But soon as I’ve got on my coat again
the dogs have started to bark –
“down comes the rain,
well get wet again”.

It’s April and renowned for showers
that quickly come and go,
but we’ve been waiting for seems like hours
with the dogs wandering to and fro.
But here comes the sun –
shall we risk it quick?
or shall we all get caught in the rain
yet again?
