Treasure Island

Arti Chopra

(16 Nov 1953 / Jammu)


The rain talks to me softly
As I walk slowly along,
It sings to me in soft drops
So comforting and tuneful a song,
My tears mingle salty
With the sweet drops of the rain
Once again my friend, the rain
Has lightened my heart again

The rain talks to me knowingly
As it softly cleanses my soul,
Refreshes my weary steps
And lifts me from a dark hole
Though the sky looks
as if it too is crying
But the leaves are
washed clean and bright
The rain washes my tears away
And gives me a new insight
The dark curtains are lifted
as sunshine breaks through as hope
The rain is my friend
Of years gone by
Once again it has
helped me cope.

    'The rain talks to me knowingly
    As it softly cleanses my soul,
    Refreshes my weary steps
    And lifts me from a dark hole'
    A nice expression.
    Rain has a soothing effect on me too. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
