3 April Rain Song Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk. The rain makes running pools in the gutter. The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night---- And I love the rain. by Langston Hughes

10 ANDRE I had a dream last night. I dreamed I had to pick a Mother out.
I had to choose a Father too. At first, I wondered what to do, There were so many there, it seemed, Short and tall and thin and stout. But just before I sprang awake, I knew what parents I would take. And this surprised and made me glad: They were the ones I always had! By Gwendolyn Brooks
