Her Little Gift to Me

Mother Nature meddles. She says, Here's
A storm. Make use of it. I lead my
Newfound lady friend, Clarice, into
A picnic shelter, not before she's soaking
Wet. She shivers. Chivalrous, or something,
I reach out and pull her close. She smiles
And doesn't duck my kiss. I'll take her home
Once it's stopped raining, make her cocoa,
Do whatever else I can to keep things going,
But, before we leave the shelter, I'll look
Up into the clouds, and offer Mother thanks.

Mother nature's just like a woman,
Sometimes she'll come in wild and wet.
And when she leaves,
She takes your home your car,....
