April Rain Song

BY 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.

  1. I don’t like rain other than for its value to life. If we could live without it that be swell. But then again, we wouldn’t see any swells in the ocean because it would be all dried up. Never mind. Let it rain!!!😁😁

  2. I love getting caught in a summer rain..feeling the soft drops against my skin. Rain makes a soothing sound tapping on a tin roof,like music ..thunder and lightening …rainbows..how can one not love rain?
