Thoughts about Dreary Days

Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and dreary.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Longfellow: Selected Poems (Penguin Classics)I don't like that at all. I want all sunshiny days. When we were kids, days were full of sunshine and mudpies! I see nothing wrong with that! ;) As I sit here and think about the quote it occurs to me that we have too many days that are dark and dreary and I really don't see their use??

I wonder what brought Longfellow to think like that?
