NOT FUNNY! (for Lyn)


The storm seemed
to run out of breath

rested on a roof a bit

and catching me
observing it

gathered itself up
found its second wind

and flew at me
in a fury.

It snatched my hat
and ran off with it

thinking it
was funny.



I didn’t think it was
funny.

    Tell me why...oh, why oh why-o
    did I just seem to know-o
    there would be a poem
    Lurking, lurking, just waiting
    for the sudden breeze
    to blow it in... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
