A Walk in the Rain ©

Margaret Leith Minter
Victoria B.C., Canada
2004

I went for a walk in the rain today
though the sky overhead was cloudy and gray;
but the grass at my feet was emerald green,
and the leaves on the trees were glossy and clean.

Sparrows were happily preening their wings
while a squirrel was pottering - hiding things.
There were cobwebs in corners, like diamonds and lace;
the raindrops felt cool as they spattered my face.

Then all of a sudden, the sunshine broke through,
and a rainbow of yellow and red and blue,
like a paintbox path, climbed up the sky
and the day had changed in the blink of an eye.

Once more Mother Nature had shown me her way,
I'm so glad that I went for a walk today.
