A WET APRIL DAY

A Hard Rain's A-gonna Fall Pictures, Images and Photos

Hear the rain trickle,

hear it fall down,

see how it forms like the

tears of a clown,

and then lies reflecting

in pools on the ground.

 

See the clown whimper

as his hollow joke falls

big pants no doubt hiding,

his minuscule balls,

and his sorrow, it echoes

down life’s ancient halls….

 

And still the rain trickles

like it’s run out of day,

like the green grass is greedy

but no sun’s drying ray,

and I’ve watched as it’s falling,

so sombre and grey…

 

she sits and she’s reading,

a smile in her eyes,

a lovely perfection

and ignoring the lies

and the rain that is trickling

like tears from the skies.
