Today was a gorgeous sunny day without a cloud in the sky – but of course, it is November on the West Coast and that usually means that the rain is on its way!

So even though I enjoyed the sunshine today, and I’m not really hoping for rain — I wanted to pay homage to this season here on the West Coast by posting a poem by one of my favourite poets, Robert Louis Stevenson.


The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

Robert Louis Stevenson
from A Child’s Garden of Verses
