on her umbrella

    cold snap

    Fun verse!!!

    Of course the most famous umbrella haiku has to be by Richard Wright:

    Just enough of rain
    To bring the smell of silk
    From umbrellas

    the chauffeur in a tangle
    with the umbrella

    a man with an umbrella
    when there’s no rain
