Rain drops scattered on the roof

Rain drops scattered on the roof
Remind me to close the western facing windows
After a sigh of relief I stop and admire all the green  
With a deep breath in, I see
A small rabbit in the yard.
The clever wildling stays unaware of me
Calm and eating grass under a strong and sprawling tree
I keep my eyes on the little one, and my ears on the rain
And soon a gentle melody is splashed across my brain
I am in my childhood bedroom being softly sung to sleep
My father strums his guitar to the rain's organic beat
