A Little Rain To Temper - Poem by Andy Brookes
The rain fell desperately, choosing to fall onto my garden.
Was I happy?
Well I suppose I was, a little rain falls in everyone's life.
mine being no exception.
I have found that too little rain and nothing grows.
as with friendships, otherwise they sicken and die.
people need a little rain, it helps temper them.
now too much rain, flooding gardens, well that's bad too.
some people have such sorrows, you know, too much rain.
that's when they need an umbrella, a little shelter from the storm,
a friend they can rely on.
one who doesn't shout rhetoric, who can share silence, listens.
when your caught in the rain, the last thing you want
is to stand in a puddleor be washed away with too much prattle.
life can be sunny too, so when it rains remember those sunny days, when flowers bloom in your garden, they might just get you through.
think of 'em as a life saver, the rainbow after thunder.
yes I'm happy it rained in my garden today, reminds me I'm alive,
just how much joy and happiness I have, so yes, a little rain to temper, is necessary or so I've found.
