clearing the cob

preparing them for

I've made this poem one of my favourites. I love the way you describe raindrops washing cares away. It's brevity makes it all the more powerful. It's the kind of poem that can enter one's subconscious, you just need to imagine those raindrops. I will recommend reading this poem to any of my patients with lots of worries. I've just written a book on happiness, read thousands of poems in search of poems to help people, and found few as good as this. It's a shame my book has gone to print, I would have loved to include it (with your permission of course) .
