It Isn't Raining Rain to Me

By

As 2011 comes to a close, I wanted to share a Poem by Robert Loveman.  Whatever this poem means, try to feel the spirit in which it was written. I’ve enjoyed being in the rain with you this year and making connections. During the past four seasons, whether you read anything I had to say, commented on a post, met me at RainCamp, or talked to me on the phone, I appreciate being a member of ActiverRain.

Happy New Year Everyone!

 

It isn’t raining rain to me,

 

It’s raining daffodils;

 

In every dimpled drop I see

 

Wild flowers on distant hills.

 


The clouds of gray engulf the day

 

And overwhelm the town;

 

It isn’t raining rain to me,

 

It’s raining roses down.

 


It isn't raining rain to me,

 

But fields of clover bloom,

 

Where every buccaneering bee

 

May find a bed and room.

 

 

 

A health unto the happy,

 

A fig for him who frets;

 

It isn’t raining rain to me,

 

It’s raining violets.

Roger,

I've enjoyed getting to know you here on ActiveRain. The hightlight for me was receiving your phone call. I'm glad we connected. 

A toast to you for a good healthy New Year!  I commend you for getting so many people on your band wagon to lose weight this year. You put together a great series and it's been a sheer joy to know you. 

Wishing you a very Happy New Year with lots of good success stories!

It is all in how you look at things. You can look for the bad and always find it or look for the good and always find it.

James,

I'm sorry to learn about the loss of your friend. What a terrible tragedy. It's times like this when I wish HOV Lanes were strictly for motorcycle drivers. I don't think there's enough laws made to protect them on the road.

It's always hard to cope with loss and when it's during the holidays, it's can sometimes be unbearable. I pray you find strength and courage to find the words to say to those that matter. Personal loss is such a tragedy.

May it give you Peace & Comfort to know, you have friends on ActiveRain.

Peace & Friendship Always,

Patricia

Fernando,

You've been a rock to me here on ActiveRain. You've provided lots of good information about short sales and foreclosures and I appreciate that.

Social media is more than absorbing or sharing information - it's about making positive connections with people who keep you uplifted.

Thank you for your spirit in the Rain. Happy New Year and may life treat you with kindness.

Rob,

You feel like a friend I've known for years. I've enjoyed all your posts and admiring the excellent photography, especially the barns.

Another season has begun, a year ends, friends come and people go. It's been great knowing you. 2011 has been a year of constant changes for many people. You've managed to keep a very positive attitude on all your blog posts. We all need to be surrounded by people like you who continues to make the world a better place.

Happy New Year and may all that you are wishing for comes true.

Good Morning Miss Patricia:  Great poem you found.  I am wondering if this poem was inspired by the song April Showers... By Mel Torme... or if the song inspired the poem. 

I am sure you are nowhere near old enough to remember Mel Torme... but I do.  My parents loved him, and my mom shared his music with me when I was a child.  He has such an incredible voice... that way back when, he was referred to as "The Velvet Fog."

Give a listen to April Showers.  From the looks of the video, it appears to have been recorded in the late 1940's... when I would have been five or six.

And a Very Happy New Year to you.
