Summer Rain

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head
with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
”

- Langston Hughes
(01 Feb 1902 - 22 May 1967)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I think there's an excellent chance that wherever you are today, it's misting, dripping, sprinkling, pouring, or storming. Of course, that might just be my goofy perception.

BONUS - Summer Rain - Johnny Rivers, 1967


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Rain_(Johnny_Rivers_song):  

"Summer Rain" is a song written by James Hendricks and performed by Johnny Rivers on his 1968 LP Realization. Of his several dozen releases, it is considered his sixth greatest hit internationally.[1]

The song reached No. 14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, No. 10 on the U.S. Cash Box Top 100, and No. 10 in Canada in early January, 1968.

"Summer Rain" is a song about lifelong love during "the summer of love." It was released in the winter, remembering the previous summer. The song twice references Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles album which was released during the middle of that year.

Summer Rain

Written by Jim Hendricks (b. 10 Feb 1940)

Recorded by Johnny Rivers (b. 07 Nov 1942), 1967


Summer rain taps at my window
West wind soft as a sweet dream
My love warm as the sunshine
Sittin' here by me,
she is here by me

She stepped out of the rainbow
Golden hair shinin' like moonglow
Warm lips soft as a soul
Sittin' here by me,
she's here by me

All summer long we spent
dancin' in the sand
And the jukebox kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band

We sailed into the sunset
Drifted home caught by a gulf stream
Never gave a thought for tomorrow
Just let tomorrow be, now,
let tomorrow be

She wants to live in the Rockies
She says that's where we'll find peace
Settle down, raise up a family
To call our own, yeah,
we'll have a home

All summer long
we spent groovin' in the sand
Everybody kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band

The snow drifts by my window
North wind blowin' like thunder
Our love's burnin' like fire
And she's here by me, yeah,
she is here with me
Let tomorrow be
