Rain

by Sam Mbure
Beneath the Rainbow

Come down sweet rain;
Come rain on me
Like you rain on the tree,
The maize and the grass;
And they grow and grow and grow.

Come down sweet rain,
End famine and thirst.
Soon the market will overflow;
Vegetables and fruits, maize and
beans;
And I’ll grow and grow and grow.

Come down sweet rain
Wash away dust and dirt
Fill our drum with sweet rain water
So that tomorrow I can sleep till nine.
And I’ll be happy, happy to rest.

Come down sweet rain
Shut out drought and heat
Swell rivers, ponds and seas
Then as I swim naked in the pool
I’ll join the frogs singing for you.

Rain of Leaves

By Aileen Fisher

It’s raining big,
It’s raining small,
It’s raining autumn leaves
In fall.

It’s raining gold
And red and brown
as autumn leaves
come raining down.

It’s raining everywhere
I look
It’s raining bookmarks
On my book!

A Dog and a Cat

A dog and a cat went out together,
To see some friends just out of town;
Said the cat to the dog,
“What d’ye think of the weather?”
“I think, Ma’am, the rain will come down.”

“But don’t be alarmed,
For I’ve an umbrella
That will shelter us both,”
Said this amiable fellow.

If a circle forms ‘round the moon

If a circle forms ‘round the moon, ‘twill rain or snow soon.

The halo that sometimes surrounds the moon is a beautiful sight. The halo is caused by light that is refracted as it passes through ice crystals of high-level clouds.While these high-level clouds themselves don’t carry any precipitation, they often foretell an advancing system of low pressure, which tends to bring undesirable weather conditions. While rain or snow may not always follow, the appearance of a halo provides a higher probability of wet weather.

Rain

by Robert Louis Stevenson

The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

Que llueva, que llueva…

Que llueva, que llueva,
la Virgen de la Cueva,
los pajaritos cantan,
las nubes se levantan,
¡Que si, que no,
que caiga un chaparrón!

Que siga lloviendo,
los pájaros corriendo,
florezca la pradera
al sol de Primavera.
¡Que si, que no!
¡Que caiga un chaparrón!
¡Que no me moje yo!

.en translation

It’s raining, it’s raining,
The cavern maiden’s calling.
The little birds are singing,
The clouds are lifting.
Oh yes, oh no,
Let the downpour fall!

It’s raining, it’s raining,
The birds go on running,
Let the meadow blossom
Under the spring sun.
Oh yes, oh no,
Let it rain cats and dogs,
Let me not get wet!


.en translation
It may rain, It may rain
The quetzal is in the cave
It may rain, It may rain
The quetzal is in the cave
The little birds sing
The clouds rise
Maybe yes, Maybe no
A downpour may fall
Maybe yes, Maybe no
A downpour may fall
