Waiting For Rain
By Kathy Koches
Sunlight streaming, finds me dreaming
Lazy hazy April days.
Waiting, hoping, napping, moping,
Hoping this is just a phase
Finally, a rainbird singing,
Music to my ears today.
And he let’s me know he’s bringing
News that rain is on the way
Cooling, soothing, breezes moving
Clouds around the sunny skies.
Mother Nature keeps us guessing,
When will we receive the prize?
Then they come, the rains at last
are pouring down, the waters rise.
Dry days gone, a misty dawn,
The sight is lovely to my eyes.
