Singin’ in the rain.We’re happy again.In the early morning rain.And nowhere to go.Raindrops keep falling on our heads.‘Cause, Baby, the rain must fall.Nearly 800 songs exist about rain.Rain changes perspective.Forget praying for peace in the Middle East.Pray for rain!Talk about an attitude adjustment.That’ll solve everything.Rain.We saw it.We got it.We live to tell the tale.Rain actually fell.And broke the spell.Thundered too.Some got two inches.Others three-and-a-half.Others as much as six.And with it, a leaky roof.Doesn’t matter.Rain’s rain.Don’t go away. Please come again.Another day.Soon.Please.At least it soaked the soil.Drenched the earth.Revived the trees.And thou and thee.So now what?River’s up.Roads rutted.Pasture’s muddy.Tractor’s stuck.Tanks holding.Roses blooming.Puncher fans cheering.Flags flying.People smiling.Birds chirping.Squirrels squirreling.Moon waning.Witches flying.Spooks spooking.Soon.That’s Mason.
