Treasure Island

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

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
