Oh To Be Odd!

Hypochondriacs
Spend the winter at the bottom of Florida and the summer on top of
the Adirondriacs.
You go to Paris and live on champagne wine and cognac
If you're dipsomognac.
If you're a manic-depressive
You don't go anywhere where you won't be cheered up, and people say
"There, there!" if your bills are excessive.
But you stick around and work day and night and night and day with
your nose to the sawmill.
If you're nawmill.

Note: Dipsomaniac -- alcoholic

I like the understated 'she' personification of Mother Nature, the repeated lines and easy flow in this. -chuck
Mary, this poem is so delightful, so full of life and love - and not a little whimsy! A beautiful take on a mother's wish come true, from one Mother (Nature) to another. Love to you! Esther : ]
Mary, you are a weatherman's dream come true! What a wonderful way to look at crummy weather... may Mother Nature grant you many more damp and rainy Mother's days! ! Brian
Deeply touching, down-to-earth... and it goes without saying on any piece of yours, wonderfully written. Belatedly happy Mother's Day (from across the pond, where we have it much earlier in the year!)
