Could be a lovely song!
Beautiful.

God bless~
This is so beautifully melodic with a rhythm to put you to sleep. I love it!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this--in fact I read it more than once. The rhythm was soothing--especially the repeated verses--and the contrast between the calming rains against the storms of life struck a chord with me. Beautifully done.

This piece was hypnotic. The pace and rhythm are consistent and seem to layer themselves over you the further you read.

I had to get a cup of coffee right after I finished to make sure I didn't nod off. If my kids were little I'd definitely use this to help put them to bed at night (who knows, maybe I will anyway). :)

But it's not just the pace that is praiseworthy. The language is beautiful and so finely and painstakingly crafted. Just an excellent job all the way around.

This is a lovely rhyming poem. It could easily be a poem for children - snuggled in warm beds, heading for sleep. Well done with this.

What a beautiful way to describe chillaxing. You had me right there swishing a long with your song.

Great work, poet!
