An ill wind.

The rain set early in today,
with darkened skies washed with grey,
to dreary make the flowered brake
and paint with tears the smiling lake,
't'was if some ill-vexed unhonoured knight,
cast black deeds upon the landscape's sight,
I watched with watered eyes fit to break,
when in my heart, came shinning straight
fond friendship enjoyed these days of late,
soft scented kept in a perfumed bower,
joyous made this rain soaked hour.

About this poem:
My very dear friends who having stayed with me awhile, returned yesterday from their sun soaked holiday with me. Today it rained.

Thank you Lady Morgan and Elo for your generous comments, and not to mention the spelling mistake, now editted, brake not break, old fashioned term for flowered wayside, but I don't need to tell you that, cheers,

Phil.

I watched with watered eyes fit to break,
when in my heart, came shinning straight
fond friendship enjoyed these days of late,
't'was if some ill-vexed unhonoured knight,
cast black deeds upon the landscape's sight,
at least in fond friendship enjoyed these days of late,
soft scented kept in a perfumed bower,
joyous made this rain soaked hour
.

Enjoyed your Lovely poetry as always Phil ...
