What's that Sweet Sound?

With all due respect for those who are longing for the sun I must relate this wonder-filled event.

It's raining! Here in Tucson Arizona, after more than a week of very hot temperatures it is raining. I woke up to the sweet fragrance of the rain and the relaxing sound of it falling on the roof of the RV.

I'm going to get some crocheting done today and let Geezer have the computer since he tells me he never gets any time on it. But I do want to share a couple of favorite Rain poems that children will like.


April Rain Song
Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
the rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night -
And I love the rain.

I Like it When It's Mizzly
Aileen Fisher

I like it when it's mizzly
and just a little drizzly
so everything looks far away
and make-believe and frizzly.

I like when it's foggy
and sounding very froggy.
I even like it when it rains
on streets and weepy windowpanes
and catkins in the poplar tree
and me.

See ya down the road,

I'm glad to see Blogger is just as slow as usual. Looks like you posted this around 9:30 this morning. So, mine should be along hopefully soon.
