Rainy Nightfall

pitter-patter the deafening roaring sound
quenching the lips of the thirsty ground

upon the bosom of the ravaging land
earthen cravings in pleasance so grand

rainy nightfall sings a sweet lullaby
in a rhythm of melodies from angels high

the song sang in sweet melody and tune
in winds harmony underneath the moon

every drop of rain a cold touch of heart
whisperings of love will always be a part

the light that will be there kindling a spark
from the rainy nightfalls of moonless dark

upon the window pane a blossom of delight
the beauty that glares in a single candlelight

wet velvety petals that kiss the candle glow
in tender caress from the winds gusty blow

sun may share the blessings from high above
from haze of rainy nightfall in dewdrops of love

    Another pen picture of a night with pitter patter of rain.It reminds of beautiful rain poems I have read and taught,which always make me feel the melody and the music of rain drops.
