After the Deluge

There's a blue harmony to Summer rain,
Its subtle rhythm suits the mood I'm in,
A pulsing tempo, a liquid refrain

Crashing over me again and again,
Cooling and fooling as it seeps within.
There's a blue harmony to Summer rain.

It rinses through me, diluting the stain
They tell us we carry; Adam's first sin.
A pulsing tempo, a liquid refrain.

It smoothes to pebbles the boulders of pain
That tumble my thoughts in a brainwashed spin.
There's a blue harmony to Summer rain.

Then, like a rainbow, which cannot sustain,
The mood's washed away and again will begin
A pulsing tempo, a liquid refrain.

For a while in Sun I try to regain
Lightness of being, slough off the old skin.
There's a blue harmony to Summer rain,
A pulsing tempo, a liquid refrain.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
