Hear the rain, patter, patter,
On the pane, clatter, clatter!
Down it pours, helter, pelter;
Quick indoors! shelter, shelter!
See it gush, and roar and whirl,
Swiftly rush, eddy and swirl
Through the street, down the gutters!
How it splashes but we don't care
Though it dashes everywhere.
We don't care, for, peeping through-
See! up there a patch of blue!
And the sun, in spite of rain,
Has begun to smile again.
