Summer Rain

We got some rain this afternoon. Not much, but enough to make the trees rejoice. This evening I'm sitting on the porch listening to my neighbor's rooster's crow and the tinkling of the chimes.
Tomorrow I'll have to cut grass because a hint of rain will make it grow like kudzu, but I'm not complaining.
I saving to put a tin roof on our house. It should last us the rest of our lives and it will have the added benefit of being a sleeping aid on rainy nights. Most of the good memories I have of the years we lived in our trailer was on rainy summer nights. We'd open the windows, lie under the sheets and listen to the failing rain.
We used to have an eight-track tape by Jose Feliciano and our favorite song on the album was "Listen to the Rain" the lyrics are:

Listen to the pouring rain
Listen to it pour,
And with every drop of rain
You know I love you more

Let it rain all night long,
Let my love for you go strong,
As long as we're together
Who cares about the weather?

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to it fall,
And with every drop of rain,
I can hear you call,
Call my name right out loud,
I can here above the clouds
And I'm here among the puddles,
You and I together huddle.

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to it fall.

It's raining,
It's pouring,
The old man is snoring,
Went to bad
And bumped his head,
He couldn't get up in the morning,

Listen to the falling rain,
listen to the rain

Maybe it will rain again tonight.
