Singing In The Rain


The sky’s beset and overcast—
Misty, melancholy and gray
There’s a sound of rolling thunder
Precipitation’s on the way.

The rain descends; it bottoms out.
Huge puddles forming on the ground.
And then, in the midst of it all,
There is a fain yet joyful sound.

The voice of a little sparrow
Faithfully calm amidst the rain
So soft and sweet the melody.
And so comforting the refrain.

If a bird can sing midst stormy rain,
Then I can sing despite my pain.
