Parasols and Umbrellas....

Dutch weather...you have to be prepared...

The parasol is the umbrella's daughter,
And associates with a fan
While her father abuts the tempest
And abridges the rain.

The former assists a siren
In her serene display;
But her father is borne and honored,
And borrowed to this day.

Emily Dickinson
