poetry 101 rehab: rain

‘Listen to the falling rain listen to it fall’

That lyric line from my childhood

Has stayed with me.

I loved playing the song,

I loved the rain.

Though when there is too much

And water starts up my backyard

I do begin to worry.

Rain is a blessing

It cools a hot afternoon

It promotes growth

It gives me reason to mow my lawn.

It is the perfect backdrop to read by

Curl up with a loved one and watch a film

To lie in bed at night and allow it to lull you off into sleep.

    I live in one of the rainiest places in the US and have never felt affection for rain until reading this. Maybe it all depends on who you share the rain with? Lovely piece, Michael.

    Well done. I love the rain.

  3. Listening to the rain on a roof, letting in drop of your face on a warm summers day, it’s magical. Well done mate.

  4. You have written so comfortably about the rain. Rain as a companion; rain as a consort.
