In the Rain

Stood outside
In the rain
Don’t do that
Often enough
Drops dampened
My dress
My hair
My skin
The beginning
Of Summer
Blurring with
The beginning
Of Fall
Not that
I would
In the rain
Every day
Only every
Now and then
To wash away
What needs
Washing away

Rain began to fall right as school ended today. This made for a damp dismissal. I had a few moments of irritation but then thought of this common phrase; a little rain never hurt anyone.

It certainly did not hurt me today. And it reminded me how quickly the seasons pass.
