Let It Rain

Let it rain while we abstain
From duty’s tireless ‘please’
The air is like a soft, silk train
Splish-splashing through the trees

Let it rain while we employ
The hour with oohs and ahs
There is such a simple joy
In nature’s applause

Let it rain. Let the breeze tease
The day with melodies
That pleases audiences. Yes.
 With dimple-dappled seas

Let it rain. Like fields of silver grain
Let heaven fall
As Earth lifts up Her leaf-sheaf mane
To catch it with Her shawl
