Wet Nurse

She came with an umbrella
but there is no rain at all.
My lonely heart is longing for a shelter
and she gave me the umbrella.
She left without a word in midnight
and the incessant rain started.
Thunder and lightning all over the sky
and my heart laments for her.

Hi David. I was hoping your poem was in regard to Oscars tomb in Paris that two English old maids delighted in breaking the penis off of the Sphinx. In the USA pencil could refer to that part of the male anatomy. Such as something being good for you or to toughen one up they say 'It will put lead in your pencil.' I gave you a 7 and found your verse interesting. Cheers, Dan
