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.
