Rain Delay

February 15, 2010

The weather in February has been very wet and several days it was tough to ride without rain gear. Kept hoping for at least some sun – didn’t have to be warm. Finally I just gave up and went out rain or no… Ride carefully in the rain!


The sky is glum with cool distain,

my bike and I, both wait in vain.

Fat raindrops plop with a flat refrain,

Puddles form with oily stain.

Rain delay.

Again I check the steel gray sky,

blind hope for sunlight in my eye.

More raindrops fall – all far from dry,

more drizzle days, it makes me cry-

Rain delay!

Intense it grows with thunder claps,

resigned, I wear rain gear and chaps.

The pelting has me check for gaps,

a GPS – I need no maps!

Rain ride.
