Meteorological Limericks (found on an old hard drive)

There was a young rainbow called Norm,
Who was so very keen to perform

Before, instead after the storm!

In a sky of the deepest of blue
Two Cumulae grew and grew.
When tea time had come
One said to its chum :
"Shall I pour dear, or will you ?"
