Another Wet Day


This is where I want to be…

Even though time moves on
and Springtime has come and gone
Summertime is here to stay
along with the sun and heat of the day
when temperatures will rise to one hundred degrees
even under the shade of the trees
the sun is hot and the skies are blue
with nary a cloud to obstruct the view
anything to do outside
needs to be done at first light
when the outside air still feels cool
as the heat of the sun is not yet cruel
today is not one of those days
as the clouds have formed and in so many ways
today we have rain along with a breeze
and the temperature has dropped to sixty eight degrees
cool for us for this time of the year
but not for very long I fear
we can always use the rain
as the heat will always return again
of this we can be very sure
which is what we have to endure
would I have it any other way
maybe a little cooler through the day
when I like to be outdoors
fussing with all of the normal chores
like feeding the fish or cleaning a pond
or cutting back plants that have grown beyond
things that are a part of my normal life
that I do everyday with the minimum of strife
today I sit and look at the rain
wondering when I can again
take a walk and so implied
and be one with Nature in her countryside.
