Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby

    The rain makes running pools in the gutter
    The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
    And I love the rain.

    Rain here is a symbol of purity and happiness. (Report) Reply

    I never thought of rain in that manner. I never really cared for it only because I had a personal vibe of discomfort whenever it rained, but this was absolutely beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Incredibly simplistic portrayal of something we have all come to know intimately, and probably developed fond memories of some moment we shared with someone else - or someone elses - in the rain. I first learned about Langston here at PH, instantly falling in love with his style and ability to strike chords deep inside of me, as this poem does so incredibly well.... Thank you PH... I might even repost this one on my own blog... (Report) Reply

    they say
    is the enemy
    It brings sadness
    it is the tears of God
    But could very well be tears of joy (Report) Reply

    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 (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply
