What memories!! 50 years ago in 7th grade we read and had to recite from
memory this poem. At our 45 HS reunion we were trying to see who could
remember the most poems from our 7th grade class. All I could remember was
"the days are dark and dreary." Thank you

Just don't dwell in the past...move on. Take it one day at a time. There
are bound to be rainy days...just remember... every cloud has a silver
lining....cheer up!

As in life we are all going to experience days that are to us the darkest
times of our lives, but the message is,if we have faith, things do improve
with time.

I loved this poem! I liked how it expressed the real mood of rainy days. I
enjoyed the rhyming and use of rhyme and figurative language. I think that
everyone should read this poem

This is an excellent poem! I just love it. The very first time I read this
poem it really grasped my emotions and I could empathise with the poet. It
would appeal to even those who do not consider themselves to be poetically
inclined based on the metaphoric comparison of a rainy day and feelings of
melancholy. Even more interesting is the simplicity of the words used, yet
they so strongly express the poet's feelings. Again I say, excellent!
