The Rain



The Rain by William Henry Davies
I hear leaves drinking rain;
 I hear rich leaves on top 
Giving the poor beneath Drop after drop;
 'Tis a sweet noise to hear 
These green leaves drinking near

.And when the Sun comes out, 
After this Rain shall stop, 
A wondrous Light will fill Each dark, round drop;
 I hope the Sun shines bright;
 'Twill be a lovely sight.

Good morning, I love the dramatic sky shot and the poem. We could use some rain here, it has been dry lately. Have a happy Sunday and new week ahead!

I've never seen that poem before. I like it. I can't remember the last time we had rain. There's been a few days where it looked like it was going to but then it cleared up before a single drop fell
