THE COMING RAIN

THE COMING RAIN

Hardly on a high alert

We wait for coming rain….

Weather radar says the Berkshires*

Are first to feel same.

Expected after midnight

Here in Central “Mass.”

Could be an inch or more

Or less watering the grass.

Then it will be hot and sunny

In time for the Fourth of July…

Our fine nation’s Birthday,

Before a lot of young men died.

–Jonathan Caswell

* the Berkshires..mountain rage in Western Massachusetts….part of the Appalachian range (called Taconic in New York State, just across the state border)
