When it rain and you're not ready


I'd long been dreaming of rain to come
To my life 'twas the chief event
for drought was fast approaching
killing me gently

Then the opportunity came
I'd put a thousand pail just out
yet the biggest vessel be in hid
for mine agony hath reigned

For if be stolen life's no use
If be judged, emotion flows
and if be questioned
what's my answer?

Mine defense be mine inferiority?
Aye! Indeed! I am weak
No trust! No hope
No face be shown

and rain hath passed
mine thinking yet undone
the pails weren't out
the vessel ain't either

I'd collected no water
I shalt die in thirst.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
