NaPoWriMo, Day 6: “April Rain Song,” by Langston Hughes…

I AM very pleased to share that one of my favorite people on the Planet and fellow Bloggers, “Shell,” wrote a lovely blog post today, in honor of National Poetry Writing Month (or, NaPoWriMo, for short).

And so, without further ado, here is “April Rain Song,” by (the late and great) Langston Hughes:


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 a gutter

The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night

And I love the rain.


Offhand, I do not know if Shell knows that Langston Hughes was a Gay Man, but I found it interesting that the image that accompanies her post features a rainbow umbrella!

Please feel free to visit the original post (and please, no hating on the fact that Shell is a Blogspot Blogger!), by visiting:

Have a great night, and may the rain kiss you to sleep and bless you with Love and Light and Life.langston-hughes-with-hat-on
