Roof: ORIGIN Old English hrōf, of Germanic origin; related to Old Norse hróf ‘boat shed,’Dutch roef ‘deckhouse.’ English alone has the general sense ‘covering of a house’; other Germanic languages use forms related to thatch.
Thatch is not an option around here!
“You and me and rain on the roof
Caught up in a summer shower
Drying while it soaks the flowers
Maybe we’ll be caught for hours
Waiting out the sun”
