The Rains Have Come

By Rick Williams

From summer rain
we did abstain
but that finally came to an end.

The rains have come down
all over the town
and have begun the fall/winter trend.

There's one good thing
that the raindrops bring
they lull me to sleep, which is good.

Though everything's wetter
I do sleep much better
though still not as deep as I should.

About Wood

By Rick Williams

It's hard when it happens:
(though no pun is intended)
days I wake up with wood
and it's crying to be tended.

I try not to succumb
every time that it rises
what if it's the best thing all day
and the rest I despises?

It never happens at bedtime
at least, without warning
when it could send me to sleep
and I'd smile until morning.
