Singing in the rain

I went for a walk in the woods today. It was a perfect day, all cloudy and overcast, with the wind of an impending storm. I just had to take a walk. The wisteria is in bloom, and I saw 10 furry caterpillars. I had to stop and pick them up and put them off the path so they wouldn't get trodden on. I love it when it's overcast like that.. there's no hot, glaring sun and all the green seems more vibrant in the gloomy half-light. But then it started raining halfway back and I got damp. Ah well. I still had to stop and pick up caterpillars, lest their fuzzy butts would drown.
