Clouds gather in the sky,
To others, it’s such a fright.
They fear the rain’s misery
or subtle message of melancholy.

I stood and stared longer,
to the rain that
brings such sweet fervour.
It exudes intensity in my fire –
something i truly admire.

As I’m drenched listening,
To the rhyming of the rain.
It takes away the pain,
Makes the sadness faint,
Truly, stupendously quaint.
