Now I shall walk in the rain . . . the friendly rain.
Down a long road until I find a lane
That leads through pastures to the ocean's shore.
Drinking the strength of earth through every pore.
Feeling the glad response of growing things
Hearing the muted hymn that Nature sings
When rain, the friendly rain brings to the earth
Song and a hope renewed and gentle mirth.
The grass takes on a lacquer of new green
While myriads of toad-stools dot the scene
Like exclamation points. Small brooklets spill
In waterfalls and rapids down each hill.
The world is glad again ... and so am I.
The rain beats on my face. I feel the dry
Parched skin relax to loose a gleeful smile
As I trudge on through slushy mile on mile.
I splash in mud and water to my knees
In reclkess pleasure. Wait! Is that a sneeze?
Good gosh! Great Scott! Oh, I say hab you
Ad aspirid? Sniff. Sniff. Ka-choo. Ka-CHOOOOOO!

  21. It is amazing how the rain speaks to us when we are ready to listen...each raindrop tells a story. Nature is magical in the way it can reveal the inner secrets. Lovely writing.

  22. That's wonderful...! It made me chuckle. I live in Vancouver, and I love rainy days. And thank goodness too, because we get a lot of them.

    "Ka-choo..." :-)

  23. I share in your mirth and joy. The sound, feel and delight of rain is indeed captured. Well done!

  24. Aw! Rain! I don't know if I'm gonna love it or not. After all the things that we've experienced. Actually, right now, another storm entered our territory. :(
