THE NIGHT RAIN

Silhouettes appeared at the lightning

Like a crescendo rhythm the winds blow

after dinner, and folktales of the  evening 

The trees bend their backs like a bow

 

The jolly and the wearied souls hide under the roofs

Nostalgia arises, and the drizzle wash the roofs

The nocturnal starts in a beat of andante 

The farmer remembers sharpening his machete  


The Eastern winds forcefully blows 

From the sky's trumpet, thunder blows  

The music on the roof becomes pleasant  

The melody of rain to all, becomes important

  

Slowly, like a bride matching  

From thoughts, the mind is descending 

Preparing to travel like a gentle gypsy 

And the world travels to the world of fantasy


The music of the rain sounds sweet

It pours, and flows to the street

How beautiful is the rain

The night rain, the welcome rain.
