I like the sound of rain, the sound of pitter pattter
The sound of the cuckoos cooing and of course the frogs chatter
I like the sound of rain, the sound of leaves rustling
The sound of water on tin roofs, and the traffic police whistling…
I like the sound of rain, the sound of thunder and lightning,
The sound of a distant crow, the sound of train whistling..
I like the sound of rain, of seeing gum boots and caps out
The sound of the car tyres, and the water pouring from the spout.
The sound of the excited children, playing on the bannister
The sight of the paper boats, never mind the incessant chatter…
Yes I like the rain, but where is the rain?
There are only few drops of water which make up the rain.
With so little to share, tis now no pain no gain…
Save up the water for another such rainy day
Where you can play to your heart’s will, just like yesterday…..
