Where is this quote from? "You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains (...)"?

Where is this quote from? I've seen it on the internet a thousand times.

"You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains... You say that you love the sun,

but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines... You say that you love the wind, But you close your windows when wind blows... This is why I am afraid; You say that you love me too..."

This is not Shakespeare... Is it? If it is, where can I find it? In which poem, sonnet or play?

    No, it's not Shakespeare. It's not even Shakespearean language. Whoever first put it on the Internet apparently deliberately but erroneously attributed it to Shakespeare. The original source is not to be found.

    It seems to be the antithesis of "saving for a rainy day" doesn't it. Perhaps it refers to the term (so politically incorrect) Indian Giver. Twain looks at the world in such a way that it opens our minds to new ideas.

    It's about like Bob Newhart's reading of Julius Caesar. "Friends, Romans, Countrymen... I've got something I want to tell you."
