The Rain
Spring rains are my favorite
they help the flowers grow
Winter rain makes good ice cream
because it’s really snow
Traveling seeds ride windy rains
Thirsty trees scrape windowpanes
Autumn rains make all leaves change
from green to burnished reds
Soft rains wash our tears away
and rainbows warm our beds.
– Nikki Giovanni
