Rain – Promote Yourself

Awesome-Animated-Gif

Rain – bringer and sustainer of life,

The glory of nature’s full extent,

Slams loudly on my window

So that I know creation’s strife.

Barely can I see the scene before

As rain comes heavy like a shroud

Over the beauty that lies unseen

From my hilltop room, on my upper floor.

But others are not so blessed

As down in the valleys they fight the floods

That have them in a place of sorrow

And grief that gives them little rest.

How long O Lord, how long must they endure

The stress of heaven’s outpourings on their homes

Whilst I look on and share their pain

From distant safety and survival sure.

Here in the UK we have suffered heavy, frequent rain since before Christmas. As a result the ground is saturated and there have been extensive floods in low-lying ground and near swollen rivers for weeks. Also, coastal areas have been battered by gales which, coupled with very high tides, have brought about much damage.This poem is my reflection on the events of the past month, the unhappiness they have produced, and my good fortune in being secure.
