The rain beats steadily on the new tin roof
The rhythm is pleasingly smooth.
I’m glad the room is not soundproof,
There’s no reason to consider a move.
I relax as I hear the beautiful sound
Of the steady pitter patter.
There’s no other sound anywhere around,
Not much else seems to matter.
I surely could abide here all day long
But duty will never allow.
I love the magic of nature’s song
It soothes every nerve somehow.
