There's beauty in a rainy day
water dropping in an endless array
that fascinates me

There's wistfulness in a rainy afternoon
the scent, the treasures of water's perfume
that generates ecstasy

And in the stillness of a rainy night
transported by sounds of sheer delight
rain soothes the beast in me

It washes down upon my face
trickling upon my mouth I taste
its splendid generosity

Not just flowing to earth to rest
it's come to fill the ocean's depth
and spend awhile with me

To quench the thirst of the ground
peaceful, gentle waters sound
come to fill my sea

Rain through the morning
the night and the day
come fill all life that lives
and cleanse my soul that way
