Songs Of The Rain
Here’s the singing of the rain,
Slowly unleashing the renascence of new rein.
Its precipitation turns all tide to drain;
Things turned stagnant, grasses yearn for mulch –
Sterility is what the soil drenched…
It’s imminent pour, we must dance the rain’s song,
Though ‘hardship’ ‘hardship’, its rhythm hung!
Yesterday our petals were emerald, fecund and gay,
Still it oozes with thrilling tone today.
It patters mysteriously on only thatched roofs,
On zinc, its mysterious ferocity stands aloof.
For rain is earth’s imminent, and nature owns rain,
Tomorrow these precipice shall petered out the drain.
