A Poem for the Rain

Since it's been raining on and off here, with more rain expected throughout week, I thought I'd share this poem.
Rain Songs
by Paul Laurence Dunbar
(from The Complete Poems of Paul Laurence Dunbar)

The rain streams down like harp-strings from the sky;
The wind, that world-old harpist sitteth by;
And ever as he sings his low refrain,
He plays upon the harp-strings of the rain.
Lovely, isn't it? I'll be thinking of this image the next time it rains.
