Cool Spring

by Douglas Woody Woodsum

Light spring rain on a metal roof:
hihat and snare at the start of a song,
measure after measure till the rest joins in,
till the rest joins in, till the rest joins in.

Light spring rain gonna do it alone:
hi hat and snare all you need for a song,
all you need for a song, all you need for a song.
The wet cat’s happy just to tap along.

Light spring rain doesn’t last very long.
The pipes start ticking when the furnace kicks on.
The roof stops singing, but the rhythm’s passed on.
The rhythm’s passed on; the rhythm’s passed on.
