We’ve been dodging round these puddles now

for just about a week,

and it’s hard to find the streets these days for sure.

It’s not a lot we’re asking,

it’s not a lot we seek:

just a route back home to get our craft to shore.

But when your craft has wheels

and the road has turned to water,

then the way cross town’s more complex than before.

Still, the snow must melt in April

and the melt helps thaw the river,

and a gradual thaw means less chance of a flood.

So we’ll pick our way in gratitude

and dig out boots and rubbers,

for we know that after water – then comes mud.
