Summer Rain


Summer Rain

A cool summer breeze travels over the plain
And the grasses anticipate a warm summer rain

The rain will bring a new life to this land
As He showers the world from his almighty hand

A single dropp falls then it kisses the earth
And from the rain, the grass begins a new birth

I felt his rain as the drops danced on my face
It was an honor to witness his life giving grace

This will replenish all that reach out and partake
Of his life giving fluid, there's no need to wait

All cares and worries seem to wash away
When a summer rain has saved the day

Astonishing to see how it relieves much pain
Gods kiss, that's what's in a warm summer rain

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
