Blessed Rain


btI7ns6

Today we are having rain
something about which we do not complain
as I have said many times before
in Texas it rains and we let out a roar
as a sign of our pleasure for so simple a task
more rain is something we always ask
to combat the heat with the temperatures high
looking for clouds to darken the sky
and hoping that rain will fall on the ground
and so doing will cool the temperatures down.

I took a walk around the yard
in between the showers so hard
to make sure that things were OK
and the ponds could handle the rain this day
I barely had time to make one loop around
before it started to rain on the ground
and I dashed to get in the house and the dry
as the rain continued to fall from the sky
and sat by the window to watch it fall
as the rain is at Natures beck and call.

  1. That’s the main reason I like the Eastern third of the country so much: semi-reliable precipitation all year long. The West certainly is enchanting, but the long, dry periods are torturous.

    Of course, as you pointed out, the dry periods make rain seem all the more wonderful when it finally does arrive.
