It isn't raining rain to me,
It's raining daffodils;
In every dimpling drop I see
Wildflowers on the hills.
A cloud of gray engulfs the day
And overwhelms the town;
It isn't raining rain to me,
It's raining roses down.

It isn't raining rain to me,
But fields of clover bloom,
Where any buccaneering bee
May find a bed and room.
A health, then, to the happy,
A fig to him who frets;
It isn't raining rain to me,
It's raining violets.
