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
