Rain

Spread the love

Let the rain pour down;
Awaken memoirs of the past.
The grass with its green;
Give life to hope at last.

The cold summer rain;
Has drenched our soul.
Running wild and free;
Having lost control.

So until the last drop;
Till the rain has stopped.
Skip dance and hop;
Till either one has dropped.

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” –Β Langston Hughes

    I adore the quote. Those of us who live in drought-stricken regions of the world will always appreciate the sweet fall of rain. Thanks, Sanaa.

    One of the beauties of living in a dry country is to walk in rain with utter delight when a drought is broken and rain running down your face. .

    Rain does have a way of awakening memories! I like the idea of making use of the rain by dancing in it. Smiles.

    A rain poem— read on a day when it’s raining where I am. And we can use the rain since the sheep pasture is getting a little sparse, leading to sheep escapes.
    I liked your use of rhyme in the poem, it added a lot to the beauty of the finished product.

    There is a nice sensuality to rain. I like to play in it as well.
    Into every life rain will fall, you might as well make th most of it. What we do with it, is our choice.
