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.
