It is a grey raining day today, and I’ve been running around like nuts trying to get everything done for the end of the semester.  I haven’t even had time to check Rosefire Risings’s blog. But I did stumble across this, and it seemed appropriate (although I didn’t actually climb up to see if the roof leaked today, and the wasps haven’t built their nests yet), and I can’t let the last day of National Poetry Month pass without a poem.

Spring rain by Matsuo Basho

Spring rain
leaking through the roof
dripping from the wasps' nest.
