You can call me a wet blanket

But I love to see the rain;

I'm always sure to thank it

When I see it back again.


I love to look outside at clouds,

Hovering overhead like shrouds

Or veils barely hiding tears

Witnessing the passing biers.


Sun-worshippers may think me mad,

A perverse sort of chappie -

But I say to them I'm just so glad

To be wet - and be happy.

Rain is a wondrous thing that we take for granted.
Love this joyful poem.

Thanks, one and all, for the comments and the "likes".
I'm with Gene Kelly when he's "Singing In The Rain"! ?

I'm half with you, MC. I love to hear the rain splattering on the conservatory or caravan roof, provided, of course, I am warm and dry under it.

We are lucky in the UK to enjoy a temperate climate, and even though we have the occasional calamity it pales into insignificance when compared to other countries.
