Soft-falling rain

Soft-falling rain

Soft-falling rain
through the night

the birdsong sharp
in the damp air

Those who have
dreams will wake

to fulfil them
those who have none

will linger in their beds
Soft-falling rain

has settled the dust
has refreshed the earth

where the dead lie
biding their time

John Lyons
