Walking In The Rain (Terza Rima) - Poem by David Wood

I am fully acquainted with walking in the rain
I have walked for hours and hours soaked to the skin
The dog and I have wandered down many a country lane

Seeing other dog walker’s on our route we smile or grin
Sometime around a lake we go and cut through a wood
Wet leaves drip on my head echoing and making a din

Head bent down in driving rain lucky I have a hood
Though wet grass and undergrowth make my legs wet
And rain runs down my face nevertheless it feels good

We love the rain the dog and I she’s a wonderful pet
And afterwards I dry her off and she’ll lie on her bed
Looking forward to the next walk without any regret

Rain is part of nature’s rich tapestry when all is said
We love the rain but for some folk it fills them with dread

    A nicely written poem, David.
    There are two kinds of people; those who like to be in the rain, and those who don't.
    Whenever I get the chance, I like to stand out in the rain, whether it is gentle or torrential. It is a 'magical' time for me
