It’s Been a Wet Spring. Just How Wet Has It Been?

It has been so wet, I have moss growing out of my ears.
It has been so wet, we keep the dehumidifier going so
     the walls don’t weep with sadness at how damp it is.
It has been so wet, when the dehumidifier fills we throw
     the water up in the air to catch the edge of the rising water.
It has been so wet, the edge of the water is a few feet higher
     than the dunes around the lake and we are wondering how long 
     it's just going to sit there without pouring over the dune 
     down to our house giving us a ride on the top of a tsunami.
It has been so wet, the frogs and toads are having a hard time 
     coming up for air because the air is now so high up in the 
     sky.
It has been so wet, only the fish are happy because they have so 
     much more water in which to swim.
It has been so wet, the fish have looked up to me for the ten years 
     they have been in the pond, but now they look down at me and
     call me funny names like Mr. Gurgle Gurgle.
It has been so wet, I now can feel moss in my nose and algae 
     in my eyes.
It has been so wet, I'm grateful that I look good in green.
