March: Penn Fields in the Rain

The rain came down in sheets

Bouncing off the pavement in the streets

Sketching out the day ahead

Crawling sleepily from my bed

People passing by

Looking greyly at the sky

Feeling a relief of pain

Picture postcard Penn Fields in the rain

 

Driving slowly down the road

Commuters in computer overload

Collars pulled up high

Trying to keep dry

Eyes dead to the early morn

Faces figuring forlorn

Water rushes down the drain

Picture postcard Penn Fields in the rain

 

Thoughts of sunshine burning grain

On some other foreign plain

Memories of heat soaked time

Sipping cool Sauvignon wine

But do you ever dread

The time that’s left ahead

Have you felt a shadow of its pain?
