The Rain Was Reddy Grey

Updated on December 2, 2017

She Climbed Into His Car

The Rain Was Reddy Grey



The rain was reddy grey

I saw the woman lingering

as though she didn't know the way


The car was slowly idling

with wipers sweeping rain away,

the windows slowly opened,

opened wide, so he could say,

get in my friend talk to me,

it's been a very lonely day.


Lonelier Than He

She lingered more, she couldn't see.

The rain was reddy grey,

he saw her smile, as to agree,

she always would obey.


The rain Was Reddy Grey

Though he was not to know

she was lonlier than he,

she smiled once more,

the rain was reddy grey.

She climbed into his car

and smiled.

She always would obey..

      What a mystery you have penned, the story hangs like a drop of rain suspended upon glass for all to watch it's descent, did she make it home o.k. or was he a psycho who had his way with her..questions abound...and an umbrella is now my thinking cap~~~MFB III

      Hi Maxine - this is a sweet and rather sad poem, I think. The woman is so lonely and sad, and yet will always obey.

      Thanks for the moving read.

      Love and peace

      Tony
