10 June 2012

It has been raining on the coast now for several days. I am loving it, although we are having flooding to occur. Sitting inside and listening to it this afternoon made me wander the web for a rain poem I haven't read. And I found one! By a man known in our state for many good deeds. I hope it touches you as it touched me ~
Souls And Rain-Drops
Light rain-drops fall and wrinkle the sea,
Then vanish, and die utterly.
One would not know that rain-drops fell
If the round sea-wrinkles did not tell.

So souls come down and wrinkle life
And vanish in the flesh-sea strife.
One might not know that souls had place
Weren't not for the wrinkles in life's face.

~ Sidney Lanier
