Rain rain come again Go away another day


When i was little, i always wait for the rain to pour
Harder, harder please i prayed...harder, please start to fall
Because i loved the tiny drops when it start to touch my skin
The feelings that surround me under the rain
There's something that tickles my inner nature
Once i felt it on my face in my being.

It brings joy and enthusiasm for a little girl like me.
My mother would always remind me that i must not stay
Too long under the pouring rain,
Because i might get sick, but how can i resist,
How can i refuse the charm that's inviting,
Oh rain rain come again, go away another day.

Ilove its tiny drops that spark and so inviting
Vivid memories i recall, now that i am old enough
To understand my mother's advise,
Now that i have my own little grandchildren,
I gave them same concern my Mom had for me

But how can i blame my little grand kids,
When they love to play in the rain, i was once a little girl,
And so i understand how they feel
Rain, rain come again go away another day
Even us grown ups have this nature
That only little children understood.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
