Maybe a rousing chourous will cool you down:-
A bold hippopotamus was standing one day
 On the banks of the cool Shalimar
 He gazed at the bottom as he peacefully lay
 By the light of the evening star
 Away on the hilltop sat combing her hair
 His fair hippopotami maid
 The hippopotamus was no ignoramus
 And sang her this sweet serenade
 
Chorus:
 Mud, mud, glorious mud
 Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
 So follow me follow, down to the hollow
 And there let me wallow in glorious mud

 The fair hippopotama he aimed to entice
 From her seat on that hilltop above
 As she hadn't got a ma to give her advice
 Came tiptoeing down to her love
 Like thunder the forest re-echoed the sound
 Of the song that they sang when they met
 His inamorata adjusted her garter
 And lifted her voice in duet
 
Now more hippopotami began to convene
 On the banks of that river so wide
 I wonder now what am I to say of the scene
 That ensued by the Shalimar side
 They dived all at once with an ear-splitting sposh
 Then rose to the surface again
 A regular army of hippopotami
 All singing this haunting refrain

Mud, mud, glorious mud
 Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
 So follow me follow, down to the hollow
 And there let me wallow in glorious mud

Whether the weather?


Can you weather the storm out there?

That depends on whether the storm is too wet or not. Maybe I'll check the weather forecast, then decide whether to go or stay inside!
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Spell my name the girl's way again John, and I'll start calling you Johanna! :thumbs_up:
But you are obviously a poet and don't know it.-

Given the weather we know not whether the feather was blown into the heather.
But with the horse, its nether we shall have to tether with some leather, before we lose it altogether!

Poet Laureate


Boy did I hate poetry at school, can't you tell. (Except for the lower class playground types, "The boy stood on the burning deck...????."
I won't give the rest of that on a Christian forum, but those of my generation might recall it!
