By Hendro Darsono

When the birds are about to warble
When the dew stops dripping
When the color of life is going to run
The rain is pouring down
Bringing God’s blesses

Everything gets soaked
The road is no longer dry and dusty
The flowers no longer fade
A dense pall of black cloud rolls in
Showering the surface of the earth
Giving a new nuance to the life

The drought has now changed
It changes everything
Barrenness becomes fertility
Heat becomes coolness
Rain… oh rain
You’ve cooled every burning heart
