This misty rain dampens my pen,
so I envision a small glen
with a cottage of ancient stone
that for one day is mine alone...
then lock myself within its den.

I nestle deep, a sheltered wren,
The pane weeps again and again,
But every stanza will atone
this misty rain.

Oh, this modern scribe has read when
springtime showers would enlighten
dark inked quills as drummed roofs would moan
and showers meant a verse to hone...
Poe and I, we have both ridden
this misty rain.

*Inspired by Francine's contest, but not entered.

    Beyond the excepted line count, friend. And my own fault, for I have a habit of reading the contest particulars in the morning before my girl gets up and then diving into writing the second she falls asleep. Sometimes the form and a line or two come to me when she's happy playing with toys. I hold onto them til night. I like what I did. Gift enough. :-)
