So times we et off easym while others get it in the neck.

The "Rock" is Newfoundland

 

Merry May has been sodden this year,
soaking wet from first to last.
More than enough moisture for seven years
of May flowers, providing that they didn’t
rot in the ground. At least the streams have
kept their banks, and the fire hazard is low.
There is fire and flood from BC to the Rock:
high water and flooding across the Lakes.
But here it has been wet and chill. a fair trade,
perhaps, for the more extreme events around us.
One ought not to take too much pleasure from the
vagaries of weather for the weather that has
so afflicted east and west has been held
in place by our relatively benign, if sodden May.
