Weather Report

I got up from the table and peered out the window

The sky was grey, and the palms all danced in high wind

I had planned a peaceful day, reading and writing in the park

Once I get an idea in my head, little will change it

And no matter the weather, I was going to spend a lazy day in the park

But mistakes have taught me to prepare

I think it would do me good to check the weather report

57 degrees, winds from north — gusting at 15 mph

Little chance of sunshine, but no chance of rain

Visibility is 10 miles and the clouds are casting over at 5,500 ft.

Today will be much cooler than yesterday’s 83 degrees

And the sun has plans of setting at 5:44 pm

Sounds all well and good to me

So I’d better stop typing and start moving

I only have six hours and twenty minutes left

Of my perfect park day

And I don’t think I should waste another minute of it

Writing you a weather report

For a town you will most likely never see
