WL Schuett

Warm Stormy Rain

she droned on about antediluvian ideals 

for peace or I don't know 

she forbade me to mention how love feels 

through the spiritual beauty of her eyes 

the warm stormy rain poured down 

on radiant, costly , immoveable lies 

I guess it was hidden in the rain 

or in the verder of the trees and grass 

but a cross that rose was hung from a chain 

and gave me hope where none trespass 


could you lay near the creek 

and hear the grass grow 

could you hear the boughs bud 

through the ancient misty glow 


tears of despair 

tears of shame 

lost in those tears 

years of blame 


ox-eyed daisy 

in a warm summer rain 

in a lost afternoon 

in a forbidden refrain 


I tried to find my peace 

though forbidden to speak of love 

from a chain a dangling cross

and still more rain from above
