-- Laudato Si’
Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—
And I love the rain.
— Langston Hughes (1902-1967), major poet, writer and leader in the Harlem Renaissance, the 1920s flowering of black intellectual, literary, & artistic life, from "April Rain Song" (Permission granted by Harold Ober Associates Incorporated.)
