rain

“When that I was and a little tiny boy,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came to man’s estate
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
‘Gainst knaves and thieves men shut their gate,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came, alas! to wive,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
By swaggering could I never thrive,
For the rain it raineth every day.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Twelfth Night (V, i)

    He that has and a little tiny wit,
    With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
    Must make content with his fortunes fit,
    Though the rain it raineth every day.

    William Shakespeare (1564-1616). King Lear (III, ii)

    I know, you have much more than “a little tiny wit”. *wink*

    That’s a very kind encouragement. ^^
    (Actually it’s just as little, or probably smaller, but since you have mentioned it, I have to enlarge it) *wink*

    I just ran across this in my searching. Wonderful writing – I love it.

    I wrote a piece recently about my experience in the Rain here in Vancouver. Here is the start of it:

    “I was caught in a downpour of rain today. The sky was thick, dark and foreboding. The water poured down in a torrent as if some invisible force had unzipped the bottom of the clouds . . .”

    Here’s the link: Its called “The Greatest Miracle” – http://johnarcher11.wordpress.com/2011/07/13/the-greatest-miracle/
