“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.
