It was raining today and I thought of this song ...



It was raining hard on the street
As she wandered without umbrella
She had one stolen no doubt
That morning from a friend.

Running to her rescue,
I offered her a little shelter
To dry the water from her cheeks
With a gentle whisper she said ‘Yes’.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

Along the way, it was tender
To hear together the pretty song
Of water from the sky falling
On the top of my umbrella.

I'd have prayed at that moment
For a never ending downfall
To keep her under my refuge
Forty days and forty nights.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

But sadly, even in storms
Roads eventually lead to homes
Soon her's will reach that dam
At the height of my foolishness.

She tells me that she must leave
After she kindly says many thanks
And I saw her disappear very small
Into the distance, into forgetfulness.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

Thank you dear Laura ,for your kind words. Yes, it is a sad ballad but still it is romantic and it could just as easily had a happy ending, we must never lose sight of hope and fate.
It has been very hot and humid here every day then in the afternoon we get a thunderstorm with lots of rain.
I love the rain, it does leave the air and the garden with a clean and fresh scent.
A kiss

I have plenty of sunshine most days, probably more than I want, the rain is most welcome and refreshing.
Happy week!

I sensed that she started to get "creeped out" by the guy, and that's why she beat a hasty retreat. After all, WHO hopes for 40-days and nights of rain, especially after that Noah debacle? I'm willing to bet she shows up next time with a beach umbrella and a can of mace.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Yannis for your very kind words, you have more faith in my ability than I do in myself.
Warm hugs

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Obrigada querida Inês , sim, a música é suave, as palavras são românticos.
Semana feliz!

Hello dear Pugsley it is so lovely to see you here again. Your comment did make me laugh; only you could come up with something so hilarious.
I tend to be a hopeless romantic, so if I was the (girl) er, woman without the umbrella, I would take my chances and perhaps forget about the can of mace. :)

Love and hugs lil Pug!
