You got it all wrong

You're reading too deeply into the poem and looking for some sort of
obscure symbolism. Like most of Brautigans other poetry, this particular
poem is actually very straight forward.

Talk about the weather is normal inconsequential conversation. It's like
talking about sports or a recent news story. The poem is about the
beginning feelings of love and how such feelings often cause us to read
too deeply into little, meaningless and trivial details, cause us to make
mountains out of so-called mole hills. You know, that point where we obsess
over every tiny little thing we say. It's about that point where we want
so badly for the other person to like us/fall in love with us. That point
where we feel like this all is such a big deal, almost a matter of life in
death, as we ask ourselves questions like "did I just embarass myself?"
"what does she think of me" "did I come off dumb" "I can't believe I just
said that" etc. etc.

The narrator is smitten. And because he's smitten, he's fumbling with his
words and cannot even make conversation about such a basic topic. He's
reading far too deeply into the girl's replies.

The end of the poem finds the narrator relieved. Now he's on the other
side of this thing. Some girl is infatuated with him and she's fumbling
over her own words, reading too deeply into his replies.

This poem got some serious meaning.Rain is a symbol of life,and love
accompanied life with harmony.In view of these two aspects,one can guest
that R.Brautigan is,refering to an unsecure love feeling for two

Rain is something that we always wait for. It is essential and sustains
life. We never know when its gonna come or fall. But we
know it will in its own time. Oftentimes, it comes unexpectedly. Just like
the love that the boy longs for the girl. He waits patiently for it but for
how long he will soon have it, only the girl knows. Raining In Love for me
is much like waiting, trusting and believing for something or someone that
you like most.
