Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Let It Rain!


You say and do the little things
A woman never forgets;
And when it rains, I smile when you say
'It's raining violets'

You hold me close and calm my fears
When we speak of plans and schemes;
And when the storm breaks through the clouds,
I know... it's raining dreams!

Your words of love circle 'round my head
Like a childrens' carousel;
You say the rain is nurturing life -
Assuring me all is well

Now, come, my love, tell me the truth,
Storms often do bring distress;
'Yes', you say, 'but as long as you're mine,
It's raining happiness! '

    A smashing poem Lora especially like the Childrens Carousel line.
    So when it rains here in England which it does a lot, I'll just remember it's rain of happiness. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
