THE HARVEST OF RAIN

“Rain rain, go away, come again another day.” “I hate rainy days.” How many times have the best picnic plans went awry because of darkening skies and the forecast of rain?

Personally, I don’t mind rainy days, as it is a good time to stay inside and curl up with a good book. Plus, it is quite easy to fall asleep listening to the steady dripping of the rain.

When I was young, I remember that we had a big wooden barrel which was placed under the roof spouting. The rain would run down and fall into the “rain” barrel and we saved that water and used it for various reasons.
