When clouds break in a dreary sky
and birds toward sheltered branches fly . . .
I sit in weary solitude . . .
engulfed by some enchanted mood.

The grayness that fortells a storm . . .
stirs feelings in my veins so warm.
Through half-closed lids I watch the worry . . .
of countless clouds that seem to hurry.

The will of Him who cautions all . . .
shall soon command the rain to fall.
And as the drops slowly hit the ground . . .
It makes such a musically pleasant sound.
While others fret and wish for warm . . .
I'm quite happy in a pensive storm!


  1. hi dear,
    you every creation has a deep and impact meaning..
    and as here in india, th eweather is same like you have just narrated...its really cool to go through it..

  2. my country has only two seasons. the wet and the dry. i love it hot and i go pensive during wet season. but the greens would soon color my world so i take every season as it comes. for it will serve it's purpose all through the years...

  6. Hi Margie,

    I like storms too, just sitting and watching the rain come down.

  7. I agree 100% Margie...there is something awe-inspiring about a storm...I wrote my first poem at age 12 because of the wonder at seeing such awesome power...thanks for bringing back those memories again.

  8. I love rain too and the smell of Earth when it hits the ground after a long dry spell! Ahh..!!

  9. Hi, Margie! Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving your nice comments! (I'll forgive you for putting Art's name in the comment - he's a character, isn't he?)

    Your poetry is great! The one about the storm makes me think of my daughter. She's happiest when it's raining and there is thunder and lightning all around!

  10. I love how you've captured this!

  11. I love the rain too Margie.Just to curl up in bed with a good book or just look out of the window.Love the way you write these poems .

  12. This is very sweet Margie. I love storms and your poetry! Thank you for sharing.

  13. Know what you mean - I used to really enjoy jogging in the rain once I got myself out there.

  14. I love storms also....

  16. I love this poem. Often back for a visit.
    Welcome spring.

  17. Thanks for making me 'homesick' for a good thunderstorm. Chances are slim to none for that here.

  18. Every storm brings with it some peace n calm afterwards...some freshness too...freshness of the soul.


  19. hi Margie... back for a brief visit then I'm off again

    this is beautiful as always, I love your take on life, but Margie we've had a lot of rain here lately and I can't say I feel quite as enchanted as you do about it, especially when I get indoors like a drowned rat... hmmmm!!!

  43. we have been in a drought for some time now and our water supply is sadly diminishing..We have been having a few wild summer storms the past few days, they are greatfully appreciated. I just love to hear and see the storms..

    Thankyou for stopping by Margie.

    I always love your poems..

  44. Hi Carol
    And I always love your poems too!
    So glad to know you are getting some summer storms.
    It is terrible to be in a drought!
    Thanks for your visit!

  45. the last part was breath taking... storm weather may brings happiness, we just need to deal it with a positive mindset.
    Great post Margie.

  46. i love the second verse, and well to be specific the last two lines .. clouds that seem to hurry .. loved it in relation to the storm and everyone hurrying to take cover.

  47. Hi Such a nice blog you have. Your creations are such a joy to read. Beautiful.
