What a drizzly day today—
clouds that just won’t go away.
But out we go, there’s much to do
before our drizzly day is through.
Sounds to hear and sights to see—
quite a serendipity!
For drizzly days can be most fun
while waiting for the yellow sun.
Drizzly days invite you to
see beyond the drizzly dew.
Little droplets hug the trees
and sway so softly in the breeze.
Carolina Wrens do chirp
while Robins from their snacks do burp.
Grasses growing silently
while buds are bursting on every tree.
A grey but sparkly glow unfurled
brightens up our drizzly world.
So “drizzle forth” and have some fun
while waiting for that yellow sun!
