Rain, rain, go away…

 

People pray for it
They write about it
Some curse it
Many welcome it
Some run through it
Some run into it
Some run from it

What is the one thing that can elicit the most

emotions

actions

re-actions

It’s simply RAIN

thI1WHN5LA

As a child did you ever sing

“rain, rain go away; come again some other day.”

Learn to live in it

with it

through it

Try to praise it

write odes to it

sing about it

It’s only RAIN!

th[3]

It will pass

it will end

it will move on

Don’t be caught

looking the other way

or you’ll miss the very best thing

of all about rain…

“..A Poem as Lovely as a Tree…”

Sometimes our fate resembles the fruit tree in winter.  Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom; but we hope it; we know it.

Johann Wolfgang van Goethe

In every winter’s heart, there is a quivering spring and behind the veil of night there is a smiling dawn.

If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.

Printed Lyrics to Only God Can Make a Tree

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the sweet Earth’s flowing breast

A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair
Upon whose bosom snow has lain
Who intimately lives with rain

Poems are made by fools like me
But only God can make a tree

Joyce Kilmer (born as Alfred Joyce Kilmer; 6 December 1886 – 30 July 1918)
was an American writer and poet mainly remembered for a short poem titled
"Trees" (1913), which was published in the collection Trees and Other Poems
in 1914.
