Hallelujah for the Rain

   Hallelujah for the Rain

Hallelujah for the rain
That streams across my windowpane,
And sprinkles on dry, dusty dirt,
Where plants and flowers felt the hurt
Of thirsty roots and shriveled seeds
That smiled upon our wants and needs.

Hallelujah for the rain
That pops from clouds like fresh champagne
To spray and pour upon the tops
Of trees, of bushes, grasses, crops,
Of roofs and roads and paths, and more
To soak us gaily to the core.

Hallelujah for the rain
That once was lost, we now regain
A kin which had been sorely missed,
We sing with joy, our spirits kissed,
With thankfulness in our refrain,
Hallelujah for the rain.

Rich Tassinari 3/2/14

We have needed it badly here in central CA.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
