Rain – wild, lashing, storming,

Like an animal confined to a cage.


Rain - as gentle as the breeze

That tenderly kisses your cheek.


Rain - busily working - pattering -

Clattering like keys on a computer.


Rain – refreshing, cool, moist

And fresh as a fruity iced cocktail.


Rain - as cold as the icy snowflakes

Which coat the mountain ridges.


Rain - as kind and life-giving

As the hand of Mother Nature.
