It stopped raining yesterday,
But I won't go outside.
I've tried and gotten wet before,
And I am terrified.

The sun was shining brightly,
And I went for a walk,
And then it rained, and suddenly,
It became too cold to talk.

Tomorrow's looking brighter,
So I might try again,
A sunny day might come my way,
And I'll forget the rain.
