Yesterday, the weather forecast called for rain.
And I was glad!
It don't rain much here,
so it's a welcome relief from endless sunshine.
Who likes that?
The best thing about rain is these:
They instantly make any outfit better.
So I had on ma boots,
and started my walk to school.
Rain turned to hail
and hail turned to snow.
People started grumbling
and then came the incensed facebook statuses.
But I felt happy all day long.
I stomped and trekked wherever I wanted,
all the while my feet remaining dry and warm,
without a reason to grumble or update my status.
And I was free to get taken away by the stillness
and the wonder
and other feelings that sound trite when you write about them,
but which really happen.
And I attribute all those good feelings
to my rain boots.
They really made all the difference.
