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

    I love the rain, I love the feeling, the looks, the sound and smell. I was born in April & Langston described it oh so well!

    rain
    they say
    is the enemy
    It brings sadness
    it is the tears of God
    But could very well be tears of joy

    Rain sin't a criminal
    It brings the beuty of spring
    Flowers of blue and yellow
    Green and orange
    Pink and purple
    The rain brings those colors to life
    To let our eyes look at the beauty

    This poem speaks to those of those who are bored with being told it's a horrid day because it's raining.
    I've often taken comfort in the rain, its sound especially. In a cold climate its touch is less pleasing.
    To Hayley M: All your carping does, is expose your own limitations. Poetry doesn't have to be frenzied.
