Rain Song (A Cherita)



You are my rain-lullaby


I am all ears

for your anklet-steps in my heart


draped in dream

you alight in my eyes

to be my little sleep song


[My inspiration for this poem is Langston Hughes’ poem April Rain Song]

  1. On my first read, I really thought you were writing this to a little child, perhaps that has now become and adult. But I guess it could be any woman, that steps lightly through your heart (based on the anklet).

    To be someone’s rain-lullaby has a really cool sentiment to it.

    Softly penned.

Thank You :)
