Night Rain


What is it about rain that is in the night, for you cannot see the clouds without sunlight; as you sleep on a soft bed with covers over your head, but there it is a drip drop instead; It does not interfere with the atmosphere, this I know is so clear; As you rest on a your bed, then must wake up to close the window, as it rains on the weeping willow and not on your pillow you just fled. A rain that causes a good nights rest without pauses, should get applauses; Most everything stops at night, but there a rain can remain without being detained; and this I will not complain, but it will not stop a military campaign; As the dawn begins to sun, all natures Rejuvenation has begun, as the birds get a good meal from the worms just revealed; The flowers and the plants reach up to the morning sun, and spread there roots they just spun, and this is good in the long run; Now there you have it, as plants and animal would rather have it, with human beings and all other species, get a night rest and a good feeling, and all this is done without ever seeing the sun is revealing.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
