First Spring Rain
Poetry By John Cannon

The first spring rain
is so different
 
from the bone-chilling
storms of winter,
 
Not pelting
or pounding
 
but floating in
on a gentle southerly breeze,
 
with drops as soft as velvet,
 
Caressing
and seeping into
 
the slowly opening pores
of the just-awakening earth,
 
Bringing nature’s
sweet life-force
 
and the joyful promiseof rebirth.
