A Misty, Rainy Day

Soft the rain fell

after the all the snow

had melted

there was stillness

hanging on the air

and somewhere from far away

a crow was cawing

it seemed too early

for spring to come flying in

but it felt so very fine

the mist made smoky clouds

rising from a ground

that was still frozen

some ice clung

to the grass here and there

but oh, it was so refreshing

after freezing for so long

I welcomed the softly falling rain

I knew that winter

would still come calling

but for now it was fine

it sure made me smile

the rain and the mist

in a steel gray sky

that in the afternoon

brought the sun shining through

with dreams of the summer past

of you and I

beneath the blue summer sky

that could turn stormy

so very quickly

and we’d chase away the gloom

waiting for the rainbow

in our room

now this misty, rainy day

sadly makes me smile

while tears cloud my eyes

wondering where you are

hoping that once the winter is over

you’ll return in the spring

for now thoughts of you

will have to do
