PUTTING SADNESS TO REST

THE WIND AND RAIN HELP MAKE OUR WEATHER.

AND OFTEN THEY’RE WORKING TOGETHER.

SOMETIMES WE GET BLOWN

OR GET WET TO OUR BONES.

UNLESS WE’VE PREPARED AND ARE CLEVER.

ONCE I WROTE A POEM THAT GOT SOAKED

I’D COVERED IT WITH MY RAIN COAT.

BUT SOME WATER GOT IN

AND MADE EVERY WORD DIM

AND WRECKED ALL OF MY GOOD NOTES.

I COULD SEND YOU A POEM THAT’S A MESS –

THAT HAS CAUSED ME A BIT OF DISTRESS.

BUT YOU COULDN’T READ IT

AND REALLY DON’T NEED IT.

I’LL JUST PUT ALL MY SADNESS TO REST.
