Spring Showers

We thank you Lord for springtime,
the sun, grasses and flowers.
After the winter’s cold we are in need 
of some pleasant outdoor time. 
Easter Sunday is this weekend.
I have planned a happy day, 
a ham dinner and an egg hunt for
forty loved one, more or less. 

I’m keeping tuned to forecasts
and searching in the sky
for errant clouds that threaten rain.
I pray they wait awhile.
My grandchildren will be excited
and running in and out.
If the showers come they’ll track in mud
and mothers will be scolding.

I know we need the rains, Lord
and that is why you send them.
But if it is not too bold to ask,
please hold them off to Monday.
