This the best one. One of my favourites!


After the rain

The wind is whispering beautiful summer songs
With the gorgeous flowers blossoming with delight
I strolled about, feeling brave and strong
With my heart growing warm and bright
The memories of the past, with little pain
Dwelling in my heart from many decades
Rang a bell, while the summer rain
Brightened by the gorgeous summer shades

Faded ribbons on rusted keys
Once hanged on the hooks by tiny hands
With childish pride, sorrows and glees
Untouched by then, lonely they stand
Depicting a time, lively and bright
Singing a melodious sonnet's refrain
Swinging the umbrellas with childish delight
Rambling in the park, after the summer rain

Those keys of love and summer romance
For the trunks, filled with faded red roses
Shoes once worn to ballet and dance
Pretty hats for holiday poses
Frilled frocks for summer balls;
Songs and poems with incomplete refrain
Under the umbrella, first love's call
Dancing in the sunshine, after the rain

The time when matrimony bells were rung
A beautiful ring for a young love
Songs, composed and gaily sung
With blossoms blooming and flying doves
The dull blue sky, the sun shining bright
Oh love, love, unable to restrain
My heart and feeling, soft and light
A beautiful kiss, after the summer rain

The waterfall is singing a beautiful lullaby
A gorgeous rainbow from a gold pot
From pink linen cloth comes a baby's cry
Shuffling in a soft, little cot
The glimmer of the sun, sparkling upon the sky
Kisses on the rosy cheeks, unable to restrain
Resting in mama's hand, a peaceful butterfly
Walking in the sunshine, after the rain

The wind is whispering beautiful summer songs
With the gorgeous flowers blossoming with delight
Life flown away, peaceful and strong
With my heart growing warm and bright
The memories of the past, with little pain
Dwelling in my heart from many decades
Rang a bell, while the summer rain
Brightened by the gorgeous summer shades

jst cought this one..
"I strolled about, feeling brave and strong"
dont u thnk "i strolled along" is better and typo. correct?
and otherwise its a lovely piece.
the scent of ur crude and innocent writing which many young poets try to hide with inappropriate complicated words is so good!
