NO OTHER WAY

I'm writing this on a cold dark day,

With the sound of thunder out to play,

Reverberating around the nearby roofs

Like the stampede of ten thousand hoofs;

While its weeping relative - the rain...

Streams across the window pane

Washing away the city grime

Cleansing in its own good time

But this much I feel inclined to say:

I wouldn't have it any other way.

Count yourself lucky John. Properties here with rivers flowing over their back gardens are out of my price bracket......

Must look for that CD Trevor.......

I love rainy days too. And the River Aire now flows over my back garden. It’s timeless.

It surely harks back to the safety of the cave that our ancestors took
refuge in, watching the elements strut their stuff from the security of its warm (ish!) dry habitat.

Thunder: I have a CD of theirs.....
Sometimes nice to watch the rain running down the window from a nice warm room.
