April 24: "April Rain Song" by Langston Hughes

April Rain Song
by Langston Hughes from Collected Poems (Estate of Langston Hughes, 1994)

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night--
And I love the rain. 
In case you want to hear the poem with some graphics, here's 2 options for you. 
This one is from Disney Junior and features Disney characters. (The poem itself starts around the 35 second mark after an introduction of kids talking about how they love poetry.)
This one is by the New York Botanical Gardens, and features lovely nature shots.
