From one of the Necklace of Stars poets, for Storm Christoph:
It drizzles It mizzles It pours and it streams It comes down in buckets It fills up the streams It gurgles in gutters It eddies and swirls It blocks out the landscape From clouds it unfurls It aims icy pellets Down on our heads It pounds on the roofs Of little tin sheds It comes down too heavy Or comes down too little It comes down in torrents Or dribbles like spittle I look out the window. It's at it again When will it stop This bloody wet rain? Annie
A Necklace of Stars, working with older people in Derbyshire, is supported by Arts Council England, Arts Derbyshire, DCC Public Health and Derbyshire County Council Home Library Service. This project is particularly aimed at countering isolation; during the pandemic we’ve been working using distance methods – post and phone conversations.
