The Sound of Rain

I wakened to the tears of fate
The hush of death
The wind’s debate
The willow’s breath
And on the roof the roaring stream
The wings of cloud
The winter’s dream
And fluxing loud
Across the land the hiss of drops
That raven’s purr
That never stops
A muted whir
That sings our song from day to day
Until the dawn
Is drained of gray
And clouds are gone
But for the time we’ll learn to hear
The joy in pain
The faith in fear
The sound of rain
