A cold and rainy day
and I am just drifting.
"The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Rainy Day

You can make even a rainy day seem like a wonderful place to be.

Very nice picture and pretty poem. Ahhh...I'm drifting away with words. It's raining where I live and leaves are drifting to swirl among our busy existence. That picture makes a leaf more significant, and I'll start paying more attention when I step outside.

Dreary and very wet here.

I love a rainy day to sit inside beside the window. The rain looks much nicer when I'm not out in it!

Rain, it used to make me nervous, But, now I just curl up with a duilt and a book.
Longfellow. Perfect.

This Longfellow poem is very appropos for my neck of the woods. We have set records this week for rainfall, and that's really saying something for Seattle. Having grown up here, I happen to love the dark and dreary, wet and windy days. So, I also love these words that capture the beauty that some people don't see in such days. The photo is lovely, too. Thanks, Endment!
