like splinters of diamond
Shards of crystal
or liquidized glass!
from a translucent sky.
Ooh, that lucid lustre: no wonder they say,
there's something sexy about the rain
Atleast it does seem to drive dripping lovers insane.
And then as if frenzied, excited all of a sudden,
the drizzle converts into a heavy downpour
as thunders bellow and thunders roar
as rivers swell and rivers soar.
Rain battering on your rooftop
like needless war drums
or drumming bass drums
The heavens having opened
to announce a cloud burst
Till it's said to be raining cats and dogs
or more realistically, fishes and frogs!
O' God bless the nimbus
Those soaking cotton wool puffs in the sky
Those candy floss rainclouds sailing by.
And when I glance down at a river
and then up at the rain
I prove to myself cheerily that what goes up
comes down again.
Ah, but if at all peeved you are by Mr. Slish slosh
I beg yah, pray don't send it to faraway Spain
Come on just you get out your mackintosh
Ah watch it fall heavily and then wane.
For rainfall it is that cleansing moisturizer rainshower
needed to spring-clean garden and bower
so nature's buds can open and flower
So droughts can simply disappear and cower.
Ahem, but let's all save water not just bucks for a rainy day
for there're grim predictions of a planet run dry
Whatever may be the reasons for dinosaur extinction
lack of water shouldn't be the one for us nor parched sky!
That said, the sky then for a thumping of his chest
for showing-off nature at her very best
To receive that seven coloured trophy garland
The divine arc and arch of rainbow hues
Compensating as if for the colorless rain.
And now tell me will yah still send it to Spain?
Wön't yah sing for it to 'drop' by again?
