Just Rain

Its been dry now for months,
lawns and gardens, a mess.
Yes, its sunny, its bright, 
but we couldn't care less.

The earth needs rain
to replenish her soul.
This early summer weather
has taken its toll.

All day there's been cloud.
A promise unspoken.
We need a good downpour.
Our dry earth is broken.

I hear the leaves whisper,
the clouds bounty, released.
A temporary reprieve, 
our dry spell has ceased.

Rain ! Just rain ! 
Soak the earth, long and deep,
and with the sound of the rainfall
I'll be lulled to sleep.

    I pray you will get your much needed rain...Here in the Midwest we have been getting rain almost daily for the past two weeks.

    Francine, beautifully penned poem, 7, I wish I could send you some of my Ontario rain and would you like some wind too

    Where do you live, Francine? Here in NW Fl we need rain too. We've gotten a lot of thunder, dark clouds and lightning but not much rain. I enjoyed your poem! Love, Kim
