A TEAR AND A SMILE - GIBRAN KAHLIL GIBRAN -Song of the rain



Song of the Rain


I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven

By the gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn

Her fields and valleys.


I am beautiful pearls, plucked from the

Crown of Ishtar by the daughter of

Dawn To embellish the gardens.


When I cry the hills laugh;

When I humble myself the flowers rejoice;

When I bow, all things are elated.


The field and the cloud are lovers

And between them I am a messenger of mercy.

I quench the thirst of one;

I cure the ailment of the other.


The voice of thunder declares my arrival;

The rainbow announces my departure.

I am like earthly life, which begins at

The feet of the mad elements and ends

Under the upraised wings of death.


I emerge from the heard of the sea

Soar with the breeze.

When I see a field in Need,

I descend and embrace the flowers and

The trees in a million little ways.


I touch gently at the windows with my

Soft fingers, and my announcement is a

Welcome song. All can hear, but only

The sensitive can understand.


The heat in the air gives birth to me,

But in turn I kill it,

As woman overcomes man with

The strength she takes from him.


I am the sigh of the sea;

The laughter of the field;

The tears of heaven.
So with love - Sighs from the deep sea of affection;

Laughter from the colorful field of the spirit;

Tears from the endless heaven of memories.
