Ronda Matson: Songs

Out of the Rain (for Sam)

(Ronda Matson)

The wind sweeps the street,
bending people to the torrent.
Umbrellas, bright pink and green,
offer their small protection.
Hold the blue and white.
Spin the umbrella wheel,
make it a dance!
Umbrella dancing in the rain is the best that we can do
when the grey takes over
and the world is all awash.
