A Welcome Change

So clearly now it comes to me
In the soft sighing song,
Of water raining down upon
The parched and thirsty ground.
A touch so brief and soft
As the wind passes by,
All the world around me heaving
A contented quiet sigh.
So long in the desert
Without an end in sight.
The rain now falling softly,
Promises new life over night.
The subtle sigh of leaves
Falling softly to the ground,
As Summer's raging heat
Gives way to Autumn coolness all around.
