The Rain Keeps Falling Poem by Valerie Dohren

I prayed the sun would shine today
But still the rain keeps falling
It seems the clouds are here to stay -
O feel the darkness calling

Yet high above the misty skies
There smiles the sun full shining
Thus promising to stay our sighs
With clouds of silver lining

The rain brings beauty to the earth
The mill wheels keep revolving
All trees and flowers find re-birth
The hardened land dissolving

I prayed the sun would shine today
But still rain keeps descending
Beneath the showers yet I play
In joyfulness unending

‘Tis better to behold the world
In all her glory, turning -
With all her beauty thus unfurled
To ease our soulful yearning

    oh val, this is so beautiful and the imagery is so indescribably,
    astonishingly took me from the darkness of the
    rainstorm, to the sun fully shining above the clouds...I could
    envision the whole scene and it blew me away... (Report) Reply

    I find music in this poem and I can hear musical notes.......falling, calling, descending, soulful yearning. I have not yet made up my mind how to describe you as a poetess, perhaps, in future. (Report) Reply

    The last verse throws the optimistic point of view on this nicely written piece, nothing can we do except enjoy what ever we are given from day to day....... (Report) Reply

    The rain is falling here in tropics as I read your poem. The tinkling sounds of -ing rhymers match with the falling raindrops. I've come across your poetry just a week ago, you write beatiful poetry, Val

    your poem gives me cause to stop and ponder all that is March rain. As I type this it is storming here.
    April is just days away...a beautiful name for the first month of spring. I am sure she will bring yellow golden delight and sunshine and flowers and we will forget cold March rain. (Report) Reply

    A wonderful poem, if it's not the rain it's the snow.
