"It's Midnight. Can You Smell The Rain?"

Once upon a midnight, dearies,
as I pondered, not weak, or weary
insomnia reigned,
but alas there came
no ravens
tap-tapping at the door or the pane,
or tap dancing on the floor
for that matter!

No ravens, that's for sure,
just good ole rain that
the heavens are gonna pour...
that's right, folks,

rain, Rain, RAIN!
Does the rain in Spain
really stay mainly on the plain?

The dusty Spanish plains of Castilla...
not a sign of rain in the sky!

Personally I think it is a real pain,
this rain, Rain, RAIN,
and surely a bane
to those who dwell 

below the swell
bereft of a gutter
or some kind of drain...
