Rain and You (Sonnet No. 1)

~ RAIN AND YOU (Sonnet No. 1) ~
From: a Trilogy of English Sonnets

Rain teems down and 'gainst my window lashes.
So I think of you as teared raindrops fall.
Sent here to earth in splishy cool splashes,
A waterfall on my small cottage wall.

My thoughts turn to you, though I know not why,
I think and wonder, are you safe within?
Wishing, hoping that you're cozy and dry,
Chestnutty warm from your toes to your chin.

But now survey! the rainy wet has lifted
The ground is damped, but not so up aloft.
The blue breaks through although clouds have drifted
To leave a landscape newly, fleshy soft.

Bless the day becoming clear and brightly
Sprinkling dewdrop daylight ~ gently, lightly.


Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
I have writ a trilogy of sonnets to more or less finish off my 2019 year. Hopefully they may each be read as a separate sonnet or read together as a trilogy. I will post one per day, I hope that you enjoy them.
Editing stage:
