Forgotten Rain Dances

August 2, 2008
By Cliona Roberts, Katonah, NY

The rain pours down
Making a passive song
On the compressed sand
Tears mix with rain
As I tilt my face
Toward the bursting sky

The rain cleared away
Everything that had
Built up over the summer
Finally I could set it all free
As I spun in circles

The sand damp beneath
My feet as I walked along
The dark shore
The rain beat down
Upon the forever churning waves

Nothing stopped for me
Life went on
People grew older
People changed
But most of you forgot

You forgot about
Our rain dances
In the shadows of the night
You forgot how it helped
Keep us young
You forgot
