A Summer Shower

The weather forecast said there could be “intermittent rain”
And now the falls from Iguazu are running down my drain
I’ve soaked beneath Niagara where the boats defy the mist
And marvelled that such cataracts could possibly exist
But now in urban Harrow on a dismal summer day
I think I’ve seen the tidal wave to wash them all away!

And then it stopped raining and the sun came out!
