Rainy Days by Marilyn Lott

Aren't you amazed when the sky turns dark
And the air has got a certain feel?
You know that something is about to change
And rain sort of fits the bill
You look up in the sky in expectancy
Just waiting for the change to take place
It's really rather spell bounding
In that darkened wide-open space
And then a splash falls and it hits your nose
You know that you should run for cover
But you stand their waiting excitedly
If, like me you're a rainy day lover
And then down it comes, of course
Soon it pounds upon the roofs
It's kind of a miracle when you think about it
And the drastic change is the proof
The air changes then to dampness
And smells so fresh and sweet
It pours down upon your head
And puddles beneath your feet
Everything will benefit because of the rain
If it does not go on for days
Oh yes, I think it's enjoyable to have
A sweet refreshing rainy day!

Marvelous grumpy skies and I love the poem -- I feel exactly the same way about rainy days. And that's a good thing considering I live in Seattle. Hope you have a great weekend!
