it was gray, which I like, and wet
which I don’t. the umbrella was
a sail. it pulled me along
and I thought of Mary Poppins and Grabbit Rabbit,
although I hadn’t thought of them in years.
all because it was a rainy day,
and very good for thinking.
(Most everyone knows Mary Poppins, but who remembers Grabbit Rabbit? Let me know if you’ve heard of him…)
