Singing In The Rain



Standing in the pouring rain
At dawn
On the trail
In a hail of wet
In a pause

The sound of men
From a trailer
Banging on a kettle,
Drumming on a block of wood

Be heard
In the lifting song
Of bass, baritone and tenor

Singing the Blues
Singing Gospel
Lead and recitative

Call and answer—
The ancient resistance
Active in the pain
The rain carried away the sound
To a heaven hearing melody.
