There Were Girls

There were girls inside each drop of rain that fell that Spring;

Several could be kept

Balanced on the brim of a hat.



It was only later,

In the dog days of summer,

When we had grown and driven all the boys mad,



That we slipped down the well

To sweeten Hell

And the devil was awfully glad.

How could he not be glad
After all he had?
Sweet girls, now that ain't bad!

Love this ... it begs for music

Mojo said...

I know just the music Daryl's talking about too.

To paraphrase: "It's raining girls! Hallelujah!"

I think if anyone could sweeten Hell... it'd be our own Fireblossom.
