Rainy Day Sunday

I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
‘Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.

And when the Sun comes out,
After this Rain shall stop,
A wondrous Light will fill
Each dark, round drop;
I hope the Sun shines bright;
‘Twill be a lovely sight.

– William Henry Davies

  1. What a beautiful photo Nancy. I love the effect of water dripping off of petals & leaves.

    Thanks, Racquel — we had a few steady showers today. Just enough to give everything a gentle drink.

  2. I love this poetry and this purple beauty!

    Thanks, Rosey! The purple flower is Calibrachoa — a plant that was new to me until this summer, but was a star performer, and one I’ll surely use again. Thanks for your visit.

  3. That is a really great photo, it conveys movement and includes such beautiful. I just love watching the rain (not that we get it very often here)

    We’ve had nearly three weeks of perfect days, so the showers were actually welcome today. :) Back to sun tomorrow, so they say. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your comment.

  4. This poem is the perfect match for your lovely photo, Nancy! You can just see the flowers perking up again after a good drink. We could use a little rain here!

    Yes, they got a good drink, for sure, with more coming tomorrow. :) Thanks for your visit.

  5. I like your rain poem and photo. I think we are going to get some today. I must go plant something.

    Thanks, Donna — sometimes it’s hard to find the right poem to accompany the photo (without writing it yourself), but this one seemed to suit. :) I hope you got lots of planting done. Sun today here — a bit more rain tomorrow before sun for the rest of the week!

  6. What a beautiful photograph, and a poem to suit it! You are very lucky to get a few showers, in Owen Sound it has not rained for almost a month, and the ground (clay) is starting to crack.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
