Emily Dickinson - The parasol is the umbrella's daughter,

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.

this poem made me laugh for some reason; it is creative, and its also "cute" in a way.
