The World Is Having Wash-Day

I wrote this while sitting on our front porch this afternoon and watching the rain we have needed so badly! :)

"The World is Having Wash-Day"
By Rachel H.
The world is having wash-day
And good old-fashioned showers
Have come to rub the smudges off
And freshen up the flowers.

The world is having wash-day,
And in the new-scrubbed sky
The raindrops fluff the cotton-clouds
And hang them up to dry.

The world is having wash-day
And all creation stops
To have their faces scoured
By the friendly silver drops

The world is having wash-day
and a cleansing cool and deep,
And soon will put on Autumn robes
before it's winter sleep.
