The Dancing Rain (poem)

The dancing rain came strolling down the street

To freshen up the thoughts of yesterday

Another blessing spring has sent our way

To stir the dreams of times which were so sweet


We lavished wonder by an open fire

And told each other secrets of the heart

Surrender to the flames which soon would start

And lose ourselves in passion and desire


We turned the page to passion’s bitter rage

To argue and believe in reasons why

So hurtful were the knives that there would fly

Because of rain we dealt with tearful cage


Yet through it all we watched our seasons flow

And somehow love would keep us hand in hand

Some mystery we didn’t understand

Perhaps the dancing rain down street will know

Sometimes the rain comes and washes the dirt away.. and

much can cause mold / mildew.. the latter sounds like the end result in my life...guess I' just in a funk of late...thought provoking words..

All won't disappear unless you make it go away such strong words and so true

Love, then endurance, then apathy.

Why must it always play out this way?

You put it much more beautifully, Martin.

Beautiful poem, I used to love dancing in the rain but the real fun was drying off later in front of an open fire :). The only sharp flying utensil would be for roasting marshmallows. However a good fight can sometime clear the air.

Love always has its share of pain, but the rain can wash it all away and let the sun shine through. Up and beautiful.

It does dance along the street - and over the fields, too. Interesting.

Voted up and beautiful. I'm all ready for the rains to begin. We still have snow coming down. Passing this on.
