We can do a lot when it’s sunny
And almost as much in the snow
But when it’s pissing down with rain all day
There aren’t many places to go.
Everywhere is dripping and glistening wet.
The dogs are as a damp as they’ll possibly get.
The clouds groan full with more rain to fall yet.
Which sea god did we upset?
Some days are meant to be spent chasing the sun across a patch of grass.
Even though we know it must end eventually, it makes sense to squeeze as much as possible out of a plump, ripe day.
When that white-hot disc dips behind a building and the day is done — and tomorrow turns out cloudy — we’ll regret it if we haven’t caught a bit of it.
It’s a lot harder to remember the sun is always behind the clouds if we don’t stash some away while we can.
Don’t forget the sun cream!
