Rain

Rain come down.
Rain fall down and wash away
The heat and burdens of the day.
Cleanse the sweaty streets and flood
The grass and gardens with their buds.

Rain fall down.
Rain come down and melt away
The crankies and the weariness.
Soak the pavement and the lawn
And cool the moody, stifling throng.

Rain pour down.
Rain crash down from heavy clouds
And crack with thunder oh so loud.
Let lightening be your messenger
And cause the trees to sway and blur.

Rain pass on.
Then once your job is good and done,
Be on your way, from where you’ve come.
And wait until another night
To make the morning new and bright.
