Guinevere Eveleigh


The Rain


I felt the rain
It was so heavy
On my slippery skin
I saw the rain
I couldn't tell
Which were raindrops?
And which were tears
On my cheeks
I tasted the rain
As it washed away
My dirty sins
Cleaning me whole
In-between my fingers and toes
Right down to my belly
And rinsing my lungs
I danced in the rain
As it lightened
Making way
For the sun and its rays
Such a beautiful end
For the rain

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
