Noah’s Umbrella – Some Poetry Fun

Noah’s Umbrella

When old Noah built the ark

And the rain began to fall,

Mrs. Noah brought his umbrella

From the hatrack in the hall.

             *****

“You’ll need to count the animals

As they walk up the plank,

But you needn’t get all cold and wet

While standing in the dank.”

              ****

So Noah used his umbrella

As the animals marched past

And when he thought them all on board

He closed the ark at last.

              *****

“Wait for us, “ the spiders cried,

Mosquitoes, fleas and ants,.

“We want to come with you as well.

We’ll hide among the plants.”

                ****

The ark began to float away

And they were getting damp.

“Send us your umbrella

And we’ll float out to the ramp.”

                   *****

If it hadn’t been for Noah

And his umbrella from the hall

We wouldn’t spend our summers

Slapping bugs against the wall!
