Rain

The Rain
Robert Louis Stevenson

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.



It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring,
He bumped his head, and went to bed,
and he couldn't get up in the morning.


Rain, rain, go away...
Come again another day.

Please know you are not alone in this (thumbs down) autumn, Shady! Jose Feliciano singing 'Listen to the falling rain ... ' runs through my head looking at my garden of neglect!

You know, I wish I had a dollar for every time I sang that song over the last couple weeks!

This is a song we've been singing for the past 4 months! YIKES! I hope it's not a predictor of the winter that is coming up.

Joey, Dave, and Jackie - Yep! I just couldn't help this post. ;-)

We had a lot of rain yesterday, just poured. It does get old after awhile doesn't it? :)

We gardeners are a grumpy lot:
We grouch when there's no rain, too much rain, the wrong rain, rain at the wrong time...
Worse than farmers:-)

The sky is full of holes,
that's how the rain gets in....
but these holes are small,
that's why rain's so thin!!!

Catherine, It does get old, and I try not to complain... but today is another day! The forecast was to be no precip (at least that's what it said a couple of days ago) for the next couple of days. So I purchased a pickup load of mulch and have begun working again! yea! :-)

Joco, I guess I was complaining. Sorry. I'm much better today... we even had a few minutes of sunshine! :-)

Hi Ruth, You are a poet and I think you know it! ;-) I'm outdoors working today - hurrah!

THere are many people that can relate to this poem Shady. I have heard the rain lament from many today at work.

Lisa, Just going from blog to blog shows also that the rain is widespread. I admit I've been a little "down," but I hope I haven't been too grumpy, lately!
