Poem 141: Let Fall The Rain (Many Years Later) - Poem by Samer Madbak

Let fall the rain, O sulky skies
Bring down your sullen splashes
One final time to seal my eyes
And lock my lolling lashes
Let spill the spate
Upon my pate
Let down the chute of fluid fate
Let all this turmoil dissipate
This moil of joy and pain

Let fall the rain upon this hull
This figure dull and ashen
To shawl my soul with arrant lull
A stole of dumb dispassion
Let blow the squall
The closing call
Let down the wondrous waterfall
A shimm'ring shroud, a placid pall
Of liquid cellophane

Let fall the rain, let flow the flood
The sprinkle of ablution
The epilogue of breath and blood
The tacit resolution
Let plunge the pour
To still this core
The drizzle dins the dismal score
A tale dissolves for evermore
Let fall, let fall the rain!
