An Instant Poem

From my desk at the British Library:

A Wish


Outside the Library in Euston Road

a girl is running in a shower of rain;

on the taut canopy of her umbrella

the multi-coloured letters spell:

PLEASE RAIN ON ME.

In the long dampness of an English summer,

may her wish be granted.

It must have been raining a lot in Egland recently.
An interesting poem.
