191: April Rain Song

“April Rain Song”
Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head
            with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song
            on our roof at night—

And I love the rain.
