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:
