Under The Summer Rain


Drops rippling
In the lake where we were raised,
In the place where we met each other
Under the summer rain
Thunder cracks
Lightning threatens
Shadows on the dock, silenced
Calm, listening
To the summer rain
A splash in the distance
All of us wondering what emerged
Through the summer rain
The woods where we play empty
Heeding directions we've heard all these years
Under the summer rain
The time goes by so fast
Wasn't it yesterday when we were
Six, seven, eight, listening
To the summer rain?
But we're just as beautiful now
Peaceful, with everyone watching us
Through the summer rain
Don't tell us we're not like we used to be
We want it, we can't help it
But we're just as beautiful now
Watching the summer rain

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
