Last night I tried to watch the Lyrid Meteor shower. I never have much luck with these. It’s hard enough to get up before dawn then I look up and rarely see any meteors. After ten minutes I’m back in bed. I think the term ‘shower’ is a misnomer.
While I patiently watch the stars twinkle
It appears that my plan has a wrinkle
While they talk of a shower
And meteors per hour
All I ever see is a sprinkle.
