The Rain Drop
A moment's rap, a moment's tap,
A moment's snap, a moment's clap,
A moment's reign, a moment's wane,
A moment's stain, a moment's rain.
Swiftly falling through the air,
Splashing o'er the earth somewhere,
Making sounds of different strain,
All are echoes of the rain.
Striking heavy, Striking light,
Like a lance, of riding knight,
Charging down on old terrain,
Pounding echoes of the rain.
In the rhythm of the sound,
Sounds the life of earths rebound.
Speaking whispers and refrain,
In the echoes of the rain.
A moment's sound, a moment's sight,
a moment's stain, a moment's light
A moment's life, a moment lain,
And then the echoes of the rain.
