#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘Rain’
There’s a hole in the sole
of my shoe.
There’s a hole where the water
And the coat that I’m wearing’s
I can feel where the water
And the hat on my head’s
So the water it runs down
Then my gloves they are tatty
So the water, like ice – stings
My whole body is withered
No wonder, this rain, makes

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘The Rivers Serenade’
The Rivers Serenade
Beneath the weeping willow tree,
I watch the butterflies, fly free.
Attracted by the meadow flowers,
that I could sit and watch for hours.
I glimpse the rivers silver shimmer,
yet here inside the world is dimmer,
amidst the gentle country sounds,
as I lay, upon the ground.
Dappled sunlight reaches through,
bringing memories old and new.
Between the slowly swaying leaves,
of this our weeping willow tree.
And as I slowly close my eyes,
and cotton candy clouds sail by.
Memories trickle then cascade,
along with the rivers serenade.
The way our teenage limbs entwined,
sending shivers through my spine.
Then once we turn we’re face-to-face,
and locked in young loves strange embrace.
And low a moment full of bliss
with the thought of our first kiss
Beneath our weeping willow tree,
entwined together you and me

No birds were there singing this morning,
as the new day around us was dawning.
It’s raining outside,
in their nests they do hide,
snuggled up in their down and just yawning.
Today I am the soft summer rain,
You are my sweet golden sunshine.
Together we’ll build us a rainbow,
to last, a life time.
I heard the birds singing since dawn.
So I rose from my bed with a yawn,
as I stepped out my door
I said “Please sing some more.
Then I’ll join you for drinks on the lawn”.
