Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

After long days of sweltering summer and pain

I see thee pour . Pour ! O gentle rain !

Thou awaken the dreamy leaves

Giving moments of respite and relief.

Birds fly back to their eyrie

After days long and weary.

I see men jump and dance

Embracing the calm , a state of trance

Men are happy and so are birds

Life is happy and so is nature

Blessed is the Earth and all its creature

In an aura of thy mystique perfume

Wettens the Earth , gets soft like a plume

The Earth is at peace and so am I

Wet I am after days hot and dry

Thy falling drops Β quench my thirst

Making my soul crave and lust

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Wash away all my heart’s pain

Cried I have , alone in my world

With tears unseen and sobs unheard

Thy drops today are some solace

When the world has left me lone

O heavens ! Thou art my secret companion

Bid thy clouds to pour more and more

To drench my soul and wipe my pain

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

-Raashi Hasteer

    1. Frankly, I haven’t read a lot of poetry . It’s been years I’ve read classic English poems.. though I get to read a lot of beautiful poems here.
      I write anything and everything that comes to my mind. Still learning and finding ways to improve. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for you precious words . πŸ™‚


      1. Here she blossoms fueled by soft desire.
        Aching heart yearns for a simple, happy mate.
        No one stops today, but she lit a fire.
        X-Ray shows her fertile ground can’t wait.
        Unless you are a fool, you will touch her now.
        Enjoy it when you discover where and how.
