Worldly Conversation

The earth now told me by and by,
“Send a message to my in-law Sky.”
What is this message I should know?
“Send the rain to me, Sir Earth, below”
And how shall I send this message, perchance?
“That’s why I picked you– you must dance”

      Thanks! Yuck, sleet and freezing rain in October? It needs to wait for a few more days: that’s acceptable November weather. Glad you’ve got some nice weather to enjoy for the time being πŸ™‚

    I love this: β€œSend a message to my in-law Sky.” I never miss out on a good rain dance. Too cute. πŸ™‚

      Thanks! I didn’t stick to a consistent meter, but I think that adds to the whimsical danciness of it. Glad you found this to be more than “patter” πŸ™‚

    With a Nor’easter blowin this way, I’m praying it’s rain! Loved the write, the sing song play with the words…and more than fitting as I sit here watching out my window, waiting to see what Sir Earth is really dancing for!

    I like how the rain will dance, and it certainly does when it hits a very hard surface.
