Rain! Rain! Rain!
Rain of the season I celebrated
with thousands of flowers, arrayed.
’Tis a deliverance from the heaven’s chains,
an escape from the sky’s floodgates.
For rain is a sign of liberty;
yes, an emblem of peace.
Oh, rain of the season I must pray:
while passing thru the garden spray,
come lighten my sorrow-filled day.
