More Than Misty Rain

Air weighs heavy with an earthy smell,
Dare we hope for a real downpour,
Fair weather concedes to a stormy night
Care its only misty rain, we were hoping for more.

Dry fields plague the farmer’s crops,
My country roads are stirred up with dust,
Bye to the green grass and pretty flowers,
Lie to me weatherman, more rain is a must.

    Sounds like you are from the prairies with dry fields and country roads. I live in Regina and our weather has turned out hot after a long cold spring. Always love reading about nature and I smiled when you talk about the weatherman because he is never right. ha ha love phyl

    Strong lento here, Lee. This is such a timely poem for all of the poor Canucks who are seeing a lot of dust and brown grass right now. Hope this poem places high in Rick's contest~!
