I, Finney, feel so good today!
The rain has passed and fine’s the way
I feel with all the cool, grand air,
Now that the weather’s bright and fair!
Don’t get me wrong now, I don’t feel
That rain’s no fun or a bad deal.
It’s just so nice when sun breaks through
And gives a day that feels brand new!
It’s fresh; it’s clean; its coolness soothes…
It causes me to want to choose
The rain to come again someday
To help us feel refreshed this way!
After the rain, it feels so fine!
The raindropped leaves, they sure do shine.
The air feels “washed” and brightened clear,
And even new sounds you can hear.
The water rushes…leaves give drops.
It seems the “water” never stops!
It fills the streams and wets the ground…
New “green” and flowers all around!
The corns’ grown higher…gardens burst,
As if, oh my, they had such thirst!
They needed water so…to grow,
From seeds in Earth someone did sow.
From rainy day to sunny bright,
The rain has brought a wondrous sight!
The flowers, grass, and trees are “glad…”
Without the rain, they’d be so “sad.”
I love the yellows…pinks… that grow,
And all the reds that flowers show.
Some plants so richly show their green,
And trees complete the heav’nly scene!
So, how can we not love the rain?
When what comes from it is so plain…
The beauty of the plants and trees,
And all the flowers and cool breeze!
God’s gifts to us… these gorgeous things!
It shows us how all Nature sings…
How God wants for us all things bright,
That give such wonder to our sight.
To show you all these lovely scenes,
With many, many shades of greens,
Has made me feel it’s time to nap.
And though I have no sleeping cap,
I’m sure I’ll have nice rest today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #25)
