Kissing the Rain

“I kissed the rain,” my daughter said

As raindrops glistened on her head

The beads of water on her face

That shone with such delighted grace


“I kissed the rain”, she told me then

And though I’ve now forgotten when

My young child said this precious gem

Those words, I still remember them:

“I kissed the rain.”
