October 21 Multicolored Umbrellas Day in Russia

I mix the autumn rains,
And to each droplet I will add
Shades of mood improvement …
And you save them, little ones …

Here the emerald rain falls,
Bringing sea greetings and inspiration,
And yellow from the Sun we need
To make the poem shine …

Lilac rain hid the tenderness,
So warm, and almost summer …
And suddenly the green rain drop cried –
But nobody noticed it here …

Look, what a beautiful white dress …
It is almost a snowflake
Behind the collar got the drop
And burned a little bit cold ice …

Orange is very hasty …
And, ahead of all, hurries with smiles …
Slow and almost lazy
The blue rain is foggy-unstable …

Biscuit, clove and scarlet
Drips drops from colorful rain …
And Autumn starts just … wait, please …
And we’ll go for a walk with you … without an umbrella!
