In Defense of Rain

 

Some aren’t partial to it,

 

But I am.

 

 

 

Whether it is pouring hard or

 

Coming down softly,

 

Mercy drops from the heavens

 

Are cleansing and refreshing.

 

 

 

It is not hot or humid,

 

Nor does it dry or burn.

 

It is perfect for warm tea, buttered scones,

 

And looking out in calm reflection.

Some people do not like rain.  They call sunshine good weather and rain bad weather.  Oh, for heaven’s sake!  I come from Oregon.  It rains here. Not certainly as much as it used to, we are victims of global warming as well.  But rain is beautiful nevertheless.  It is cleansing and relaxing.  Settle in, make tea, look outside and enjoy.  skp
