The rain

Language: English

I hear leaves drinking rain;
    I hear rich leaves on top 
Giving the poor beneath
    Drop after drop; 
'Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.

And when the Sun comes out,
    After this Rain shall stop, 
A wondrous Light will fill
    Each dark, round drop; 
I hope the Sun shines bright;
'Twill be a lovely sight.
