Rings and rivulets of water
Rolling down the panes and roof
Running wildly through the gutters
Resting underneath the porch
Raking wet across the shutters
Remaining still for far too long
Restless children yearn to play

Brings back childhood memories. One of the many things that sucked about being a child, my parents hardly ever let me play in the rain, lol
Now that I'm older I can just bolt out & have a blast XD
Lovely poem 1_~

Thanks very much - I appreciate that. I loved puddle jumping and sailing boats in puddles as a kid.

Sounds like fun(sailing boats in puddles). I can't say I've ever done that unfortunately.

I love rain, and that is just beautiful, I wouldn't say it describes my feelings on it perfectly, but it's great to hear what other people think of rain.

It says where you got it and says the artist's name. You do not specify whether or not you actually asked for his permission to use it.

Yes, there have been people who have done things like this without asking but still credited the artist. I'm just making sure.

I must've been massively derping when I read that the first time...sorry. I've just been running into an abundance of stolen preview images lately.

I never post an image without asking. I have had my work pirated all over the place and know what it is like.
