Rainy Days - Poem by Eddie Roa

Rain chatters annoyingly
An incessant harangue on metal sheets
Drums, grates, pesters my listlessness

A lackluster sun sinks ever so weakly
On a jagged silhouette of somber evergreens
Its gilt edge no more than erose rustiness

I remember the ugliness of the day
The slate gray of twilight taking over
Amidst the harassment of an obstinate rain

    Very nice piece..rainy days usually depict sorrow but nevertheless it is also my favorite since it is the perfect time for me to be alone in my room & ponder things on my own.+10 (Report) Reply

    Sometimes rainy days unwantedly prevail. I like the last stanza of the poem.
