THOSE OLD SONGS, by                    
First Line: Patter, patter, tip-toe light
Last Line: Rain is publishing a book!
Subject(s): Rain

Patter, patter, tip-toe light,
Silver rain awakes the night,
Weaving songs whose lilt will bring
A thirsty world rich comforting.

Lyrics laugh where flowercups nod,
Sonnets stir the friendly sod;
Ode and ballad feed each tree
With supernal ecstasy.

Patter, patter, tip-toe light,
Music filters through the night.
Wake and listen, tinkling brook,
Rain is publishing a book!
