The drops fall from the sky,
Welcomed by the dry, cracking ground.
The soil lets out a deep sigh of relief,
While the trees dance in pleasure,
And the flowers laugh with joy.
The rain was long awaited,
As nature sought to quench its thirst.
The drops bounce on the leaves,
Glide on the flower petals,
And quiver on the branches.
Although the dark clouds are dreary,
The flowers glow after their cleansing shower.
The bushes and trees are alight with color,
The grass is lush and soft,
And the soil is richly filled to the brim.
The rain has finally arrived,
And all of nature seems most grateful.
It needed a change from the dry heat,
It needed to be refreshed and replenished,
But sun, please don’t stay away too long.
