Rainy Days and Mondays

Happy Monday!

We had lots of nice rain last night. I could only think of the song Rainy Day and Mondays and that poem called Rain in the night. I thought it was a good day to revisit it. I hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Rain in the Night,
Raining, raining
All night long,
Sometimes loud, sometimes soft,
Just like a song.

There'll be rivers in the gutters
And lakes along the street.
It will make our lazy kitty
Wash his little dirty feet.

The roses will wear diamonds
Like kings and queens at court;
But the pansies all get muddy
Because they are so short.

I'll sail my boat to-morrow
In wonderful new places,
But first I'll take my watering-pot
And wash the pansies' faces.
---Amelia Burr---

 " How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust
under the shadow of  Your wings."
(Psalm 36:7)


  1. so very beautiful!! i like snow but at this point, i think i might like rain better!!!!

    pretty and unique colors of the pansies!!!

  2. Oh your flowers are just what I needed this cold cold difficult morning. Thank you. Hug B

  3. I echo what Buttons said! Love those bright, cheery flowers!! We're in for another week of below freezing weather, but spring WILL come!

  4. such a cute poem! glad you got some good rain! snow and sleet here today.

  5. Aw! Pansies don't like to get their faces wet, do they? I love pansies and I hope I can have a big full bed of them this summer. I did one year! Birdie wants an umbrella. We hardly get any rain, but doesn't everyone like umbrellas? Ha ha ha!

  6. I love that little poem! We're having clouds and cold weather here today. I'm bundled up with a blanket, and it's lovely. :-)

  7. So happy you are having more rain!
    Hugs :)

  8. Dad would always tell us to see the diamonds in the rain.

  9. A cute rainy day poem and your pansies are so delightful for a winter day.

    You are so lucky to have pansies blooming already They are tough little flowers.

    So glad you finally got some rain.

    Stay happy,

  10. So wonderful wasn't it? Sure hope we get some more! Hope you have a good week!

  11. I wouldn't mind swapping out some of our snow with rain (but only if the temperatures stay above freezing ... I am NOT interested in any ice/freezing rain/sleet).

  12. I am so happy you are having rain! We were greeted with another snow fall this morning! xo Nellie

  13. Even your muddy pansies are sweet because they go with the poem :-) I'm so happy for you getting rain!

  14. Sweet poem :)
    Rainy days are lovely.
    Enjoy all your rain.
