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

    We shouldnt look too hard for meanings. Just enjoy RLS's wicked sense of humour, rather like Spike Milligan's, using the medium of poetry to surprise and amuse

    Nice stanza to read in the morning

    If this is the only poem I read in a day I wonder if it would make my day!

  • Sara Fielder (2/24/2012 9:14:00 PM)

    This poem should be psycho-analyzed.

    Ian, send-ups of Victorian 'high seriousness': Oscar Wilde.

    maybe this is one of his unfinished
    works. i wonder what interrupted
    his thought process...pain in his head.
