the sun still shines

The Rainy Day

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the moldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

(Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

What a great poem for a day like today!

Some rainy days are great, you can curl up with a good book under a warm blanket and drift the day away. But today does not feel like that kind of rainy day.
This kinda rainy day is no fun for anyone.
You can’t get outside and enjoy the beauty of March in the Ottawa valley!(and in my case if you have two active boys aged 4 and 2 coming to spend the day with us, this could be a problem!)
The house feel dark and more drafty.
The lack of sun makes you feel a little low.
Rainy days can easily get you down.

But I love how this poem reminds you the sun is soon to come, ‘behind the clouds is the sun still shining’.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, despite the rain!

Much love,

Jessica
