THE WEATHER MAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Watchman, tell us of the day
Last Line: "less I put my rubbers on."
Subject(s): Children; Mothers; Weather; Childhood

Watchman, tell us of the day,—
Is it fit for noble deeds?
Does it call you to the fray?
Or the sort of morn that breeds
Poet-thoughts along the way?

Watchman, do you gaze upon
Skies of hope, or clouds of doubt?
Faint the answer came, anon—
"Mother says I can't go out
'Less I put my rubbers on."
