Ian Copestick writes


The melancholy feeling that comes
After a storm. I really thought that the
Hail stones were going to smash through
The car windows. Then came the snow
And the lightning, as always swiftly
Followed by the thunder. I think that it's
The first time that I've ever been really
Scared by the weather, the first time that
I've felt it could really do me harm.
We come in to light cigarettes and laugh
Nervously at just how worried we were.
Well, summer's on its way and the worst
Thing that can happen is your seat covers
Fade, and personally I'll be relieved.
