I Hope it Rains

By: Kara Bahr

I hope it rains.

I hope it rains candy.

I hope it rains books,

That'd be just dandy.

-

Please don't rain frogs,

Please don't rain fire.

Maybe kittens would be okay,

But don't let it rain liars.

-

Let it rain water.

So warm, sweet and wet.

A fusillade of raindrops,

How much better can it get?

-

Water is the standard,

It's sad but it's true.

But I say, "Hey,

Let's get something new!"

-

But new rain won't come

No matter the toils or pains.

But after all my dreams,

I just hope it rains.
