No Golf Today

Angry clouds harangue the sky,
Pass before my searching eye.
Wet cement of raindrop grey,
Not a chance of golf today.

Perhaps I'll read, watch T.V.
Call some friend or have some tea.
It is that, or back to sleep
And I don't like counting sheep.

It's late I could wake my spouse,
"God forbid," we'd clean the house.
I guess I'll just lounge my chair and
Rest my feet on the footstool there.

I'll read to surcease the sorrow
And hope for sunshine tomorrow.

What an incredibly sad poem! I can relate so well! This is very well written, Sy. Good rhyme, good flow, good job.

Ya know you guys... you want to hear about a die-hard golfer (or pair rather)...my ex husband and uncle one day went to play golf, in the winter (mind you, they live in Oregon) POURING down rain! About two hours later they returned soaked...the reason they quit early?? Lightning struck not 50 yards away from them. Bunch 'o crazies!!!

Balladeer,
A good from you is incredible to me.
Christopher,
Didn't mean to make you cry.
Satiate,
I can relate to what you said
Golfers are real crazy.
Thank you all for the read and comments.

Traverler,
It's been raining so much I haven't even been able to get in 9 holes.
Enjoyed all your comments, thanks.
