Poets on Sunday | Langston Hughes

IN TIME OF SILVER RAIN
by Langston Hughes

In time of silver rain

The earth puts forth new life again,

Green grasses grow

And flowers lift their heads,

And over all the plain

The wonder spreads



Of Life,

Of Life,

Of life!



In time of silver rain

The butterflies lift silken wings

To catch a rainbow cry,

And trees put forth new leaves to sing

In joy beneath the sky

As down the roadway

Passing boys and girls

Go singing, too,


In time of silver rain When spring

And life

Are new.
