A Rain Song-4


Then some months run fast
Summer sets in atlast
Pregnantly scorching
Peakishly burning
Suffocated my heart
Steps out to breathe
But is much let down
As the wind is still

Sweltering my angry heart
shouts at the idle wind
To blow and hit the sky
And pierce the reservoir up
Sweltering my angry heart
Shouts at the lazy ocean
To push the wind up high
In stirring rolls high and high

Oh, astounding it turns now
Rising wind rolls so high
Herding the clouds in thickets
Hiding the sunny light
Darkened the ocean
Roaring and swelling
Fearing my sweet heart
To step away far

Secured back in me
Gazing at the sky
Appalled by the bolts
Struck with awe my heart
Finds a sword of lightning
Piercing the dark sky
Oh there, then it starts pouring
To my heart's full content

My heart is now happy
As vast as the sky
Summer is beaten now
Shower wins soil's love
Oh, follow my happy heart
Bathing in the rains
She sings jiggling notes
She dances thudding loud steps

And me resistlessly
Out in the rains run
Up and down of joy
Jump with my dear heart
I sing I dance I shout
In one with my sweet heart
All in thudding loud steps
In that rainy dark night

Nothing goes wrong
Though there is no moon
Though there is no light
As rain does all bright
Me and my heart so close
Sing and dance and shout
Clapping thudding loud steps
Licking the rainy honey drops

While all is well going
Like a spark of the hell
Rain stops sudden short
Summer hell sets in back
Quick in a wink's snap
Cringing me my heart
Whispers on her bad luck
I only tell her 'shhhh
Sing in praise of the Lord'

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
