 Rain is dotted silver threads dropped from heaven by Gods which Nature takes away to adorn her fields and valleys. She is beautiful pearls plucked by the Daughter of the Dawn from a Sovereign 's crown to embellish her gardens. The clouds and fields are lovers and she is a messenger between them. By pouring out she cures the cloud, and by coming down she quenches the thirst of the field. The voice of thunder declares her arrival and the rainbow her departure. When she cries coming down, the hills laugh and when she reaches down, the flowers rejoice; and when she has seeped down deep into the soil, all things are elated. She emerges from the heart of the Sea and soars with the Breeze. When she sees a field in need, she descends and downpours and embraces the flowers and trees in her own million little ways. In human houses, she touches the windows with soft gentle fingers and all can hear her welcome song which only the sensitive can understand. She is born out of the heat in the air which in her turn she kills, exactly as a woman overcomes a man with the strength she takes from him. Rain is the sigh of the sea, the laughter of the field and the tears of the Heaven and Love.

 Song Of The Rain was included in the famous book Tears And Laughter by the U.S- Arabic- Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran who wrote it in free verse. It is written in the form of the Rain herself singing her song as she comes down. 

Rain is beautifully personified here. A concise summary is available at the related link and the song which has since been slightly edited and recast in the true poetic form to facilitate singing and easier understanding is available.

Rain is the sigh of the sea, the laughter of the field and the tears of the Heaven and Love. One will wonder how scientific Kahlil Gibran was. It is as if he has entered the very soul of the Rain to sing on her behalf. This song is only one of Gibran 's hilarious and exquisite creations. 

Kahlil Gibran 's song of the rain is a song sung by the rain which describes the dangerous journey of rain.

KHALIL GIBRAN captures the rain in various images,intensity and sounds.The rain can 'CRY ' when it is full blast.It falls 'HUMBLY ' when it softly touches the flowers.When it 'BOWS ', it is an occasionfor all to be elated.The rain has its own music.Its very arrival is like a 'WELCOME SONG '.Everyone can hear this music or song bt only those with sensitive and delicate hearts can feel and understand it..................

This poem is about rain&importance of rain. This is personified and the itself talks to us.it says that when i fall i look like silver and thin threads of silver which keep the sky & earth connected.i am dropped by heaven beings known as gods by the people of earth.when i fall the nature i.e.the trees ,the rivers,the animals greet me and with my blessings the nature becomes greener and active.
It says i was once the beautiful pearl of the crown of the great goddess ishtar and the daughter of dawn took me out of it so that i could decorate her fields.
It says that when i fall the hills enjoy and laugh with happiness,the flowers smile and show their happiness and everybody on earth becomes happy &celebrate.
It says that the field and the clouds are lovers and i act like a messenger between them.i satisfy the thirst of people& fields.
When i arrive the thunder roars in my respect and when i leave the rainbow comes out.i am the life of earth whIch begin in soil and ends in the shadow of death.
AFTER THIS WATER CYCLE IS BEING TOLD BY THE POET ..
25--when i come all hear my welcome song but there are only a few who understand it.
Water cycle...read it properly you 'll understand.........
