Rainy Rock-n-Roilin'

Rainy Rock-n-Roilin'

A Poem by barleygirl
"

true story . . .

"

T’was a wet and windy bangin’
garbage cans blown and clangin’
rickety hovel releases routine rattles
belted by meteorological battles.

My tale ain’t no confabulation
all day and night with no cessation
gotta love me some rainy rock-n-roilin’
my creek is now muddy-n-boilin’.

First substantial storm of the season
theatrical thunder could be the reason
in the dark of night everything’s bumpin’
to the loud beat of my bunnies thumpin’.

All night racket incites periodic barks
protective refrain from my furry narks
impossible to catch a decent snooze
I got the rainy rock-n-roilin’ blues.

I finally got to some of your stuff in my library! I wondered when I would; there's so much in there. ANYWAY, I love the word confabulation, had to look it up, very nice. This reminds me of the yearly hurricane parties we have over here in the southwest coastline of Florida! Rainy rock-n-roilin! Ha! Glad you guys finally got some rain, I know you need it :)

I'm so glad to hear your upbeat and joyous voice again Margie ((Hugs))... Knowing how much you love rain I could feel your inner child dancing in the sound of the rain. After a long time of fire burning, this is the ultimate gift from the heaven to bring freshness and new life in your place... And I could see Lola jumping and inspecting the thunder as you lie in your easy chair (smile)... ((Hugs))...

Love seeing your joy sweet aunt...

Sincerely
Dhiman

This one rocks, Margie! Rainy rock-n-roilin' blues.....so clever. I can just imagine how your pups were howling at the thunder and lightning. You did need the rain though so it is good you had that storm. Great rythm and rhyme in this....no surprise from you! Lydi**
