House in the Storm

The storm wages on within the dark sky Dark grey clouds have erupted there within Rain does spurt downward nailing the soft ground Damaging that of nature and my skin It’s hard to see ahead to that old house With just a single dim light on upstairs To frighten those onlookers in the dark Evil seems to ooze out of the yard lairs Lightning strikes illuminating the yard I see only grass there, nothing special Nothing fearful was expressly shown there The imagination is quite loyal I was ashamed that I thought bad was there It was only a place of happiness Beauty was here even in the downpour I stand in the rain, with real stupidness Always the rain brings interest deep inside Whether or not it’s near a house that’s strange Or in a field of grass that looks so fine I love the rain, the glory on the range

    Things look more ominous in the rain, or in the dark, than they do in the bright light of day. We should always remember, the fear is just in our head! Great message in this poem!!

    Who minds the rain when it washes away all bad feelings and angst? At last a beautiful poem of the bright side of life! Great work, Russell!
