    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.

    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
