Rain Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The weatherman forecast clear skies.
But I wasn’t surprised by the cries
And the shrieks and the bawling
When rain started falling;
I’ve weathered the weather guys’ lies.

There was a young man from Purdue
Who thought his betrothal was over due.
He said, "It doesn't matter. 
We'll wed when you're fatter.
And take the first plane to Peru."

When it seems there’s abundance of rain
But superfluous showers
Give way to sweet flowers
And loveliest hues of terrain.
