Rainly Season - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Welcome to the rainy season
Summer's heat has ushered in
Every afternoon a shower
We must greet with stoic chin

Welcome to the rainy season
It has never failed us yet
Go dig out that big umbrella
Or you surely will get wet

Welcome to the rainy season
Barefoot children dearly love
Splashing running in the deluge
Never getting tired of

Welcome to the rainy season
It's a time to step aside
Contemplating that our best intentions
May not always float and glide

Welcome to the rainy season
It's what old folks talk about
Glad to have a slight diversion
To their life's fast ebbing drought

Welcome to the rainy season
Summer's heat has ushered in
Every afternoon a shower
We must greet with stoic chin.
