Rain, rain, go away
Why'd you ruin my special day?
I'm not going to Woman Song
It'll be raining there all day long.
Driving 300 miles in heavy showers
Is not a fun way to spend my hours.
Artists, vendors, I feel your pain,
And singers hate "singin' in the rain"!
I wanted to be a Woman Wild
Now I'm just a pouting child.
The radar screen is totally green
But I am blue - get what I mean?
It'll be cold too - only 60 degrees;
I'll need hot soup and an afghan, please.
You can tell that I'm depressed;
The dogs are all muddy - what a mess.
It's ruining Bismarck's Powwow too;
That's Mother Nature, what can you do?
It'll rain on the Natives' pretty parade
And the beautiful costumes that they made.
I guess it's time to end this drivel,
Before it makes your poor head swivel.
I think I'll just go back to bed
And pull the covers up over my head.

Oh Julie, I am sorry your day was ruined! I know how it is to have a special day rained out and I sympathize with you completely. Please try to find another way to be good to yourself today.

Big hug,

Oh dear, nothing worse than having a full day planned and then having it rained out:-( We had quite a lot of rain and wind yesterday but this morning it's sunny and cool. xox

Bummer! :(
Did you write the poem? I love it!!

I love it! Some days ARE like this. And some days, the only thing we feel like doing is going back to bed and pulling the covers up.

If you feel like it... may you do it!

But if not, you could always take some more evokative photos, like here... :-)

THIS IS A VERY CLEVER POEM... AND, FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH, I LOVE THE RAINY PHOTO. I'm sorry to hear that your plans were dashed.

Hi, this is Julie Marie. Just to let you know that I did not take this photo (wish I had). Most of the photos I post are taken off the web and this is no exception. If you have any powers at all, whisper in my husband's ear that his dear wife would like a digital camera for Christmas and would put it to such good use on her blog! LOL

are you spitting? damn, damn, damn..... Julie, I am so sorry that it rained :(

Annie Jeffries said...

Darn Julie. I'm so sorry your day (and everyone else's for that matter) was ruined. All that build up and what a let down. However, poet to poet, I have to say, you

wove a wonderful web of
words to ward off
witless weather woes.

great poem for a sad day -- so sorry it turned out this way -- glad your fall decoration is helping salve the sadness.
