Rain (2)

I wake up to the sound of rain –
No better one than that.
It soothes my tired and aching brain
With every pitter-pat.

It shushes down the thoughts I think
Which would have spoiled the dawn,
And, best of all, it gives to drink
My flower beds and lawn.

I’ve carried water in a can
For many days on end,
But I am but a single man
With little time to spend.

So, rather than get out of bed,
I listen to the rain, instead.
