Winter Annuals and Rain

Rain in the Night by Amelia Josephine Burr

Raining, raining, all night long;
Sometimes loud, sometimes soft, just like a song.

There'll be rivers in the gutters and lakes along the street.
It will make our lazy kitty wash his little dirty feet.

The roses will wear diamonds like kings and queens at court;
but the pansies all get muddy because they are so short.

I'll sail my boat tomorrow in wonderful new places,
But first I'll take my watering pot and wash the pansies faces.
