National Rain

Looking out of the window
the rain coming down

One wonders when again
the field will be light
and all the kinds of children

will come out to play

here, by the windowsill
again wondering
how long it will be
this time

and just what it will be to
test and again cause
the total failure
of the same old roof
that failed before

and once more
how long it will be this time
before the inner sun
comes out
once more
once again
