The First Rain - Poem by Catherine Habbie

The parched earth finally had respite
From the heavens came a delightful sight
Dark rain clouds had filled the blue horizon
It covered the burning sky and the blazing sun
Soon tiny drops touched it's face
It felt like smooth cool blue lace
Filling the earth and every little space

A beautiful perfume released in the air
Like a magician unveiling tricks at the fair
The dark earth lost it's languor
And lit up in all it's green splendour
This is the magic of the great outdoors
Still more magnificent when it pours
As glorious as the lion's roars

Topic(s) of this poem: earth, earth day, rain
