British Holiday

Cornwall Polperro

Let me tell you

how to have

a British holiday.

It should rain

every day.

Forget your umbrella


and leave the car window

open overnight,

so the pages of the map

stick together.

Maybe the sun

will appear

for a moment or two.

That’s your cue

to don the shorts,



before it gets

swallowed again

by grey.

That’s when you

return to your


in your damp

holiday cottage,

and listen to the

drip, drip, drip

of the leaking tap

and the rain.

But British holidays are still the best kind of holidays.
