Poem By ivor or ivor.e hogg
The Sun breaks through the overcast.
The rain has ceased to fall at last.
The ground below is soaking wet.
The streams and rivers overflow.
A summer I will not forget.
The violent thunderstorms widespread
With rain falling torrentially.
Forked lightning flashing overhead.
Flooding homes and property.
The rain falling persistently.
The drainage systems cannot cope.
They simply lack capacity.
The rising waters envelope
All in their path remorselessly.
