Friday Funny


(the sky this week)

My cousin is married to a man from Ireland.  They recently moved to the United States and live near me in Michigan. Her husband shared this Irish poem which he says sums up the weather here lately!

"It rained and rained and rained.
The average Fall was well maintained
and when the tracks were simply bogs,
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour
We had the most refreshing shower.
And then the most curious thing of all
A gentle rain began to fall.
Next day was also fairly dry
Save for a deluge from the sky
Which wetted the party to the skin
And after that the rain set in!"

I guess the title of the Irish poem is simple enough? "Wet"

Lovely poem, but too much rain is not so lovely.

Ah yes, he is well accustomed to rainy weather, having been born and raised in Ireland. He must feel right at home!!!!! -giggles-

Shadows mutter,
mist replies;
darkness purrs
as midnight sighs.

It's rained like that here this year and I'm not complaining. We've needed it so badly for about 27 years.
And don't ya just love Irish sayings?! So cute and clever. It's nice being mostly Irish. We have such a rich heritage worthy to be proud of.
Blessings. xx
