The Rainy Day

The poem in my previous post is one of my favorites. Why? Its lines are filled with sadness and at first read it seems depressing. “The day is cold, and dark, and dreary . . . dead leaves fall . . . My life is cold . . . hopes of youth fall think in the blast . . .” You can’t get more emo than that.

However, the last stanza tells us that everyone has their depressing moments. “Into each life some rain must fall.” Those moments are necessary in order for us to appreciate the good times we have. No matter how down we feel, the sun is right behind the current veil of unhappiness.
