April Rain Song

 — Where would we gardeners be without rain?  Rain keeps our plants happy, and it also nurtures our hearts and spirits.  We’ve combined “April Rain Song” by the great American poet Langston Hughes with “Pride” by the superb Canadian painter Osnat Tzadok to create our own celebration of rain.  Hope you enjoy our celebration, and hope you get a good rain just when you and your garden need it!

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
 
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—
 
And I love the rain.
