Ode to a Rainy Day

September 29, 2015

just give me a rainy day

but not the kind that storms in on clouds of thunder and lightning

 

just give me a rainy day of 

gentle showers that

drip like a song from the eaves and rooftops

 

just give me a rainy day

and i'll stretch out on my fainting couch

i'll lay my pup at my feet to keep them warm

and i'll read a book

 

or perhaps i'll close my eyes in slumber

or watch an old movie on tv

 

just give me a rainy day

one without work ahead

one without needs already penned in ink

on a calendar of too many lines

 

just give me a rainy day

and i will call it my own
