A Poem for The Rain.

It rained for the first time in a long time.

I woke up smiling at the world through the window.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved rain and I wanted to share a poem I wrote today. I’ve been reading Cowper’s work, so that’s kind of where the line length came from.

Today is the first overcast day that I’ve seen

Since I left Thailand months ago. I’ve been

Waiting on this. I love the rain a whole lot

And without it here, the grass and I have not

Been at all the same, because we love to let

the rain fall down. I know I’ve only met

A couple people who share my sentiment,

But I’ll keep smiling when I see clouds relent,

And release their loads.
