Odes for a wet and wetter day.

One misty, moisty day, when wet was the weather,
I chanced to meet an old man dressed all in leather.
He began to compliment and I began to grin,
"How do you do?" and "How do you do?" and
"How do you do?" again.

It rains and it pours,
I've got too many chores,
There's the cleaning and baking to do.
I'd rather be out
On a wild, wet hill
Laughing and dancing with you.

The author? YOU? Very clever. :~)

Oh, e-mom, thanks for the praise...but though I have written some little ditties in my time, none were so good as these. I don't know who the first one is by. The second, I think, is Maurice Sendak, though I could be mistaken on that.
