About the rain

There is something about rain
Quiet like, fallin' on a tin roof.
Sort of hypnotizin', the sound
Relaxes a hard workin' man.

Sit there, just there
At the end of the porch
Rock back and fro, real slow
Put your head in neutral and rock.

There is something about rain
Constant, like sheets across the hills.
Mesmerizin' to the eye
Dulls the aches and pains.

Rock quietly an' stare out
Not lookin' for a single thing.
Now an' again, just stop
Sit still an' focus down the creek.

There is something about rain
Cleanses, washes, cleans.
Rinses off the toils of life
Makes the world smell new.
