A Rain's Refrain
and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
How charmed, that pitter-patter on the glass -
The trickled weep upon each windowpane,
An April code from heaven, sent en masse,
To tell me hope is blooming 'midst the rain,
(A tap-tap-tap of spring-tide's soft refrain) ...
This rain is sent like nectar from the gods,
To give each chance at life the fairest odds,
Or hear a strain the rain has gently wrung
From tender clouds, now all of life applauds ...
As with the rain, that song is sweetly sung.
