Kiss The Rain

              Kiss The Rain


I dug the earth with sharpened blade
I turned it with that hefty spade
For hours my arms did sweat and toil
To prepare for you the soil

I made it smooth with my long rake
The stones remove and clods to break
I work to make your little heads
Warm and comfy in your beds

A furrow straight and deep I draw
And place you tender in that score
I cover you, make sure your firm
Hope your safe there with the worm

And so for now my toil is done
Its up to you the rain and sun
For I have done all that I know
To encourage you to grow

From time to time I look to see
If you have broken through for me
For I would love to see again
You soak the sun and kiss the rain

    hahaha, on that comment you just made. It's my typical luck with that particular judge lately. But I will not bend to doing what they tell me to do when I am already satisifed with my result! How are you doing? It's funny you commented to my poems just as I was going off here . Just five min ago I had seen you commenting at another's poems and was thinking: where is my comment to Petal? I then checked and saw you had no new poems for me to see. but thanks for seeing mine!

    haha you stick to your guns Petal, be true to thine ownself. Well I have been coming and going for the last few days, it gets so busy on here sometimes I forget who I've commented on and who I've missed. I always try and comment on others whether I've posted a new ne or not. I don't think the point of commenting is just get some back.

    Your arms did sweat and toil? Ooooh, the image. On a serious note, a beautiful write, Richard. A gardener and a crack poet you are. Great combination. Licia :-)
