Washing

I hang the washing in the sun
then watch as angry black clouds come.
Soon there’s hail mixed in with rain;
I fetch the washing in again!

    Isn’t it always the way! A beautiful day…until you dare to hang out the washing.

    Fun, Libby! I can see this as an illustrated children’s book with wonderful pictures of flapping vintage linens and denim overalls.

    I had to laugh! I know what you mean!
    Perfect rhyming and meter – just trips off the tongue – you have such a talent for this, I really struggle with this kind of poetry, writing it mean, I love reading it!
