Beneath the leaves of a bright yellow flower
A fairy sits and listens to the shower
Of rain falling plip plop all around
On plants and rooftops and on the ground
Washing everything clean and clear
The trees, the houses, and even the air
So everything's fresh and sparkling like new
And covered with drops like morning dew.
Though clouds hide the sun, it's a pleasant day
Relaxing, refreshing, in every way
A time for renewal and quenching the thirst
Of the parched and dry and dusty earth.
As the fairy sits still and soaks it in
The sights and sounds cause her to grin;
She's happy to see within and without
The end of the long and weary drought
For she knows the rain and the sun take their turns,
An important lesson in life she has learned
To flow with the times, for she knows they will change
As rainbows and sunshine follow the rains.
In every moment there's something to gain
Like listening to the music of the falling rain;
Our wise fairy knows that life brings us showers
And she also knows that showers bring flowers.
