Can you hear it falling, outside the window sill?
The trees and leaves are drinking. And everything
Is still. Into the night, the rain creeping, down the
Outside wall. And as you lay awake you can hear it in
The hall. All the animals are hiding in their
Little holes, waiting for the rain to stop thumping
On their burrows and homes. Inside the house the
dogs and cats are sleeping. And you can hear your child
weeping. You hope that soon you will be sleeping.
So that you can leave the rain in your dreaming!! …
