Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

out from under an umbrella

in a dream i met a girl
who swam in sentiments
she poured idyllic notions into the cool night air-
and kneeded my rigid consciousness
we glided down gleaming streets
illuminated by lamp posts and love
she endowed me with the audacity to abide the day
and seize the moments that had always slipped away
layer by layer, exhausted habits were peeled away
stripped away was my artificial shade
we let the rain wash away my doubt
and from under my umbrella
i eventually ventured out
