April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

    A simple poem it seems apparently but can be decoded to produce a jewel.

    Can you ever miss the bone chilling dampness that drums out its sad refrain...
    The floating boats, and whistled happy notes remembered in the rain.

    " The rain makes running pools in the gutter
    The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night" a typical experience unless personally felt... it can't come up in the lines of poetry... loved it..

    let the rain hide your pain
    let it replenish your brain
    let it flow let it bathe you
    then you won't be so blue.
