Let It Pour

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
~Langston Hughes

Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.

Excellent variations on the theme. Some are unhappy being in the rain, some are happy.

And I love the Mae West quotation. (But then, I love *most* of Mae's quotations!)

Mae West...bless her! I love all of these, Tabatha....but that's probably because I love the rain.

This is a delightful post, Tabatha!

I love that umbrella picture by Maurice Prendergast. I recently came across Prendergast, and I have an upcoming ekphrastic poem using one of his works!
