The only thing that makes me sad about rain is the number of earthworms who end up on the side walk. This eventually leads to their demise, which is quite unfortunate, as earthworms don't do anything, except chew up and excrete dirt. But still, they get lost on the pavement and then they either dry up or get squished by insensitive humans. I didn't try saving any, as it was still raining when I passed them. Instead, I wrote a mournful haiku. You might be wondering about the 'twelve inches long' part. Well, I saw one earthworm who, when stretched out to its full length, was quite long. Twelve inches is an exaggeration... but maybe eight. Poor earthworms.
