Number 1 - 'Raining Still'

Little love, all fast asleep.

The blackbird outside is singing in the rain.  Leaves are freshly watered, the puddles are deep, and the ground is soggy.

“Lovely weather . . . for ducks”, I’m told.  “Yes.  But I’m not a duck, and I don’t like it!” I retort.

Spring has sprung, but she’s in hiding.  I hope she reveals herself soon.

Rain, rain go away.  Come again another day.

She sleeps still.
