Rain Music


On the dusty earth-drum
  Beats the falling rain;
Now a whispered murmur,
  Now a louder strain.


Slender, silvery drumsticks,
  On an ancient drum,
Beat the mellow music
  Bidding life to come.


Chords of earth awakened,
  Notes of greening spring,
Rise and fall triumphant
  Over every thing.


Slender, silvery drumsticks
  Beat the long tattoo-
God, the Great Musician,
  Calling life anew.

Written by Joseph S. Cotter, Jr. (1895-1919)
