Raindrops on roses

Isn’t it utterly delicious

When it rains?

Raindrops on roses

When you want to burst out into song

And warble, “Raindrops on roses …”

At the top of your voice?

When the drops turn

Crepe-paper thin petals

Into art?

And when petals

Blossom into beautiful hearts?

  32. Couldn’t find a place to comment on the
    Our World page … just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do. A temporary glitch just makes me think about how we take all your work for granted week after week. (And anyway it is our Labor Day holiday, so I thought maybe the meme was on a three-day weekend ;)))
