Art and Poetry: Just the Rain and You and Me

Just the Rain and You and Me


All the clouds that crawl

As the raindrops fall

Gentle breeze that blows

Through the highs and lows



Ripples dance on lakes

That the rainfall makes

Golden sunshine beams

On the crystal streams



All the leaves do droop

Happy flowers group

Wet and wild they wave

Rainbow paths they pave



Birds that hide in nooks

Give us baffled looks

As we glide and slide

Muddy slopes we ride



Let’s go dancing in the rain

On the green, green open plain

Want my arms to hold you close

Kiss the raindrops off your nose

All my eyes wish is to see

Just the rain and you and me

Just the rain and you and me...


We have all we need

Love’s tender seed

Grows with sunshine smiles

On these rainsoaked aisles



Eyes that meet through mist

Make that magic list

Of the things that show

How the feelings flow



Through the slate gray sky

Little rays come by

Making rainbow shine

And its treasure is mine



Not a pot of gold

Like it’s often told

But it’s you my girl

Makes my life unfurl



Let’s go dancing in the rain

On the green, green open plain

Want my arms to hold you close

Kiss the raindrops off your nose

All my eyes wish is to see

Just the rain and you and me

Just the rain and you and me...

All my eyes wish, is to see

Just the rain and you and me

Just the rain and you and me...

Well, this deserves an Acadamy Award! This is beautiful and I am moved and speechless. I have never seen so many rainy day paintings that are so beautiful and sweet. And your poem leaves me speechless and that doesn't happen to me very often! This makes one want to look forward to a rainy day. Unique and creative!

I sure do like your video, and I can't help but wonder how you make a video like that? Care to share? It's not a YouTube, is it??

Any way, I loved your work here..the poem is wonderful. I love the rain. I have a house with a metal roof, and it sounds so wonderful when it rains on it.

I voted this UP,etc.etc. and will share your lovely work.

Nice job Doc. You are just too good for me. You stick to the poems and vids and I'll deal with the inspiration. Tried video and had my best results but Mr HP doesn't seem to like me doing them. 3 out of 5 substandard and unpublished. 2 identical ones left published. What is going on around here?

DanaTeresa 4 years ago from Ohio

Incredible. You have capured every little wonderful thing about rain: the colors, movements, feelings,etc. And then there is that sweet wonderful romance intertwined. This is one of my favorites to date.

Can you send some of that rain my way?!

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York

So now you add master of presentations to your list? Your opening video was lovely and the music so fit your beautiful poem!

"Eyes that meet through mist" ...I really found those words touching and moving...the entire poem is beautiful. I would say stay out of the rain to keep dry but after reading this maybe I should say, "go out into the rain for more inspiration!"

Voted up, beautiful and awesome.

A plethora of different art forms that leaves me in a swirl. The paintings inspire me to shake the dust off and paint. The video with musical accoutrement is sublime. Whether your work is filled with a fantasy feast for the eyes or a story that renders tears, you make a rainy day where I want to be. You give so much to the world, Mohan, you make it a beautiful place. Thank you

This is beautiful. I almost could hear a melody as I was reading. The videos were an added touch, but your words really painted a story. I think this poem put over some classical guitar would be beautiful. However, your words are stunning just by themselves.

Hi Mohan,

What a wonderful poem and an equally beautiful video! You have described rain and nature in all it glory. Great romantic feelings that you have expressed beautifully. No more adjectives to say Mohan (I am at a loss for words), so off I go. Sharing this must-read poem with the hub community. Cheers, Rema.

All the good adjectives were used in prior comments, so I'll limit my comment to: beautiful!

The timing couldn't be more perfect for this to show up on my HP feed. It's been raining where I live for two weeks, almost non-stop, and my lawn is mush. In fact, I'm beginning to feel a bit "mildewed" around the edges! I needed to encounter something positive and lovely about precipitation today...and this is it! Your hub is a marvelous attitude-changer when one is tired of rain. Thanks.

Voted Up++

I fell in love with this from its start - The Rain.. I've always thought there's something mistily romantic (is mistily even a word?! LOL). but you've taken the Rain

and woven beautiful magic into it...Wonderful presentation and so beautifully romantic. Awesome!

So nice to see you here....Hugs always my friend...dotti
