The Rain



 For days , the sky was high and far away
The sun shone  hot through out the day .
When the vehicles sped past
Danced a great wave of dust .
It was hot  everywhere !

 The grass in the field turned yellow .
Cows stared blankly at the meadow.
Flowers , creepers all droopy .
The grains in the fields were thirsty !
It was dry everywhere!

One hot afternoon , the air was still .
At that time we were taking our meal .
A sudden thunder sounded in the distance .
We were alert in a n instance.
The rain might  be coming this way !

 The dark clouds gathered lower
Soon raindrops fell upon the flowers.
Big droplets fell on the roof and panes.
Down to the pavement and drains .
The welcome rain !

The birds hurried back to their nest .
There they took their shelter and rest.
The wind blew coldly .
The brooks and rivers swelled rapidly.
Never a day so wet  !

 Soon the rain slackened
And the storms weakened .
Out came the sun !
Children began to run .
The tropical rain storm had stopped.

Came the storm sudden !
Went the storm just as sudden .
Soon the rainbow appeared .
Damp and wet was the atmosphere.
Beautiful was the world after the storm  !


The drops still hang on the leaves.
The spiders at the corner began to weave.
Mother nature was fresh and green .
The rain has washed her all clean .
The blessed rain !

The Rain


  One afternoon , the rain poured heavily down .
We couldn't go out we had to frown .
The sun hid itself behind the cloud .
The thunder crashed frequent and loud..
On such a day , the sky wore a  greyish crown !



The birds fly home before the rain .
When the rain stops they fly back again.
The trees, flowers and grass look extra green .
The rain has washed them all wet and clean .
The rain brings abundance to the field of grain .



The wind blows fresh and cold.
The rain droplets are big and bold.
As the rain splashes down
The crops will soon be fully grown .
Indeed the rain is better than gold !



The wind blows and the trees sway .
Such a sight drives one's worry away !
Under the clear blue sky
Our thoughts to heaven fly.
It's good to pass by this way.
