Sins Of The World Washed Away:
The mist shrouds and floats in the valleys,
gentle wind moving it slowly.
Overcast skies, day gloomy,
bringing forth small rain drops.
Refreshing the trees,
Snails now roam.
Droplets of water,
clinging from all the leaves.
Now a rainbow does appear.
Everything seems bright and new.
All the sins of the world washed away.
