Fragrance of Rain - A Lento
Running with hand in hand in the hazy rain
Feeling the warmth, drenched in each other
Living on the moments, besieged by haze
Nothing, not a fraction of the day matters.
Care not to go home with the umbrella closed
Share the drops dribbling down window pane
Fire inside, glowing in smiles and hugs shared
Slumbered to sleep by, in the foggy rain.

Lento Poetry ~ abcb defe/ First Word In Each Line Should Rhyme
A Lento consists of two quatrains with a fixed rhyme scheme of abcb, defe - the second
and forth lines of each stanza must rhyme. The fun part of this poem is that all the
first words of the first verse should rhyme and then all the first words of the second verse
should rhyme. There is no fixed syllable structure to the Lento.
