Poem by Mary Hobson

Weather Forecast

The roads are dry today.
Good visibility.
No rain till later on, they say.
Next news at three.
Why do I listen when he isnt there?
Why do I care?
The forecast is a charm
To keep some other mothers son from harm.
I hope it may.
But its too late for me.

8th May, 2000
