I am posting posthumously for my father who passed away on May 16,2012. He left behind a wealth of poetry that I would like to share. Before he passed, his children printed a booklet of his poetry to share with his friends and family. These are the poems I am putting on this site.

Strollin' In The Rain
Strolling in the rain, singing a sweet refrain,
Just my gal and I alone.
Though it’s far from being fair we- don’t care,
We have sunshine of our very own.
Each little raindrop falling on the street
Is part of that melody my gal and I repeat.
Yes, we can share our love whether in or out of doors
‘Cause when love rains it really pours.
I can’t think of anything better
Than strolling through the rain
I know there’s nothing wetter
But who cares you get dry when the sun shines again.
