Day 162: Rain

“Rain rain go away,

come again another day”

Was the song we used to sing

Was the song that filled our summer afternoons

Was the song I’d wished I sang yesterday

But it’s too late now, the rain is here

It falls like bricks from the sky

Destroying everything it reaches

I sit by my window staring through

Watching my carrots drown

Watching my lettuce shrivel and die

Watching my hard work washed away

Rain rain, here me say

Fall on us but not too long

Fall on us but not too strong

And when all is done, please go away.


Thank you for reading.
