Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

The rain incessantly in a drizzle
Overcast skies blanket the area
Wetness gives the sense of Middle Earth

Dripping off of floppy hats and umbrellas
Pedestrians trudge their weary ways
Rain incessantly pervades

Creeps into every crack and crevice
Glooms the brightest hope and cheer
Wets outside purposes with dread

Yet, it is what was so long sought
Prayed for, desired, looked for
Rain that would check the scorching drought

How fickle the mind, the emotions
Rain now unwanted and desdained
Shoulders shrug off the clinging drops

Eyes view the threats of flood
Ears listen for silence
That the rain has stopped again

The rain will stop again

Drizzle (c) 2003 Quentin Clingerman
