rain go away

we used to sing as innocent children

at play

when the sun refused to come out

and all we could see was puddles and mud

couldn’t go out

or get our feet wet

to keep from catching cold

so we sang a song

of prayer

asking the weather to change for us

until the sun showed her face

but today

this rain is coming down hard

we have no power over its force

of devastation

no safe place to run and hide


rising waters running in the streets

full moon watching

tide swelling

banks breaking

ocean and land becoming one


we wait for the sun

to show her face

so again we sing

our song


go away
