First Spring Rain
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,

and seeping into

the slowly opening pores
of the just-awakening earth,

Bringing nature’s
sweet life-force

and the joyful promise of rebirth.
