Song of Evening Rain

,          ,                ,                 ,                      ,                       ,                    ,

We took no notice of a sky turned gray And the change of brooding gloom The autumn rain had tiptoed in We almost missed it's coming, but for leaves That murmured quick surprise along the eaves And tapped excitement on the window-pane But having heard, we left our cozy place And stepped outdoors to smell the air To feel the slope of rain upon the face And could even hear the rustling trees Dripping wet with sheer delight Gratefully welcoming tap-dance songs Of raindrops in the night

    Aye! What a beautiful vivid picture you have recreated for me Carrie. And could even hear the rustling trees Sweetly praising, and dripping with silvery flight. Love that! Number one in my books. Lainie
