Catches me every time, Davy, so I’ve been trailing my brolly around unused with me for the last two completely rainless weeks.

This is an amazing visual. I can see it unfolding before my eyes as I read. Fantastic Davy.

We have them here too. It’ll be bright and sunny one minute and then all of a sudden there’s rain. All the while the weather forecasters are busy saying it’s going to be a sunny day.

Well done and clever, Davy. It seems mother nature never gets the memo or maybe we don’t get the memo?

Haha, even as much as I’m not proficient with Brit-speak, I believe I got the full meaning of this–very enjoyable, Davy!! Soaked suits is wonderfully visual–and the umbrellas have sadly been left at home, thus idle…yes? Which reminds me, does anyone use “bumbershoot” anymore? I think it’s a delightful term! Very Mary Poppins-ish πŸ™‚

I loved this….first because I had never heard of “brollies” until your poem and secondly because once I understood the term, the poem came alive – so cleverly!

Our Autumn April Showers have been cyclones this week….my umbrellas hibernate in corners too, never to be found when they are needed.
