The Umbrella

This poem proves that you can literally write about anything. I wrote this poem for a poetry class a few years ago, when I had to write a poem in free verse couplets. I was sitting under an umbrella, and thus was inspired. Happy Independence Day! Appreciate your umbrella.

 

tall, straight, and slender stands the umbrella

rope, silver, and vinyl is the umbrella

 

over stands the sun

under stands the grateful

 

over pours the rain

under stands the grateful

 

tall, straight, and slender stands the umbrella

rope, silver, and vinyl is the umbrella
