Rain Comes

Rain Comes

 

The rain tapped on my window

And tried to come in

But I recognized the rap

And left it in the wind

 

I waited ‘til the coast was clear

And the knocker was long gone

Though after a couple days went by

I saw it on my lawn

 

It filled my little gauge

And made sure that I knew

That it had watered the primrose

And the blue bonnets too

 

I found I needed it

To clear the gray away

And reveal the colors it did

With a rainbow in its place

 

Today I enjoy its percussion

There on my metal roof

And I relax when I hear it

With a little nap there too

          w c,
          That was great!
          I love the rain...
          as long as there’re no leaks in the roof!😉

            sure I was doing LSD and the patter on the tin roof was marvelous.

                Thanks Theta. There's nothing like a little shower to cleanse things I really like to nap when it's coming down.
