667. There will come soft rain and the smell of the ground… ~Sara Teasdale

Plink, plink, plinkity-plunk,
Plink, plink, plinkity-plink,
Ting, ting, ting,
Drip, drip, drip,
Ping, ping, ping,
I’ve put myself completely
in the keeping of another rainy day.
Plop, plop, ploppity-plop.

Rain Music

On a drenched earth-drum
Beats anew the falling rain;
First a whispered thrum,
Then a louder strain.
Slender, silvery drumsticks,
On an ancient drum.
Beat the mellow melodies
Bidding life to come.
Chords of earth awakening,
Notes of coming spring
Rise and fall triumphant
Over each and everything.
For God, the Great Musician
Taps out all such transitions.
~Edited and adapted lines
from a poem
by Joseph Seamon Cotter

Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. ~Hosea 6:3

  1. I love this picture of the bird with all sorts of gold colors. The quote reminds me how much I love the smell of the earth being kissed by soft rain. I just realized that I don’t smell that in winter rain. One more thing to look forward to 🙂

  2. I liked your poem! I have been listening to the rain, too. My little boxwoods are always so happy this time of the year. When I think of areas like California suffering from drought I am even more grateful.

    Hugs and Blessings,
    Theresa
