Summary of song of the rain:-
Gods are instrumental in sending the beautiful rich drops of rain to feilds and valleys to revitalise their greenery and freshness and enhance their beauty.
The daughter of Dawn herself pulls off pearls from the crown of Ishtar - the goddess of fertility,love,war and sex to pour them over the thirsty gardens to slake (quench) their thirst.
The rain describes how the elements of nature and all things around respond to its pouring down. When it rains heavily, producing great sounds, the hills laugh merrily as they are rejuvenated. When it gently touches the flower petals - they experience an ecstatic joy. A drizzle with all its humility invokes a spirit of joy in all hearts.
Imagining the clouds and fields to be lovers, the rain feels happy as it establishes a link between the two. It mercifully quenches the thirst of the parched fields and relieves the heavily vapour-laden clouds by taking the form of drops of water and starting its earthward journey.
further the rain draws a parallel between 'earthly life' and its own life. Thunder announces its arrival and rainbow depicts its end. Born in the midst of thunder and lightening, it ends, as its drops merge with earth, is denoted by a rainbow.
Summing up its life once again, the rain talks how it originates from the depths of the sea and is lifted to the sky by the breeze. It takes its downward journey again when it finds the thirsty fields yearning for it.
Gently striking against the window panes, it finds itself welcomed by one and all. The inner music of song of the falling rain is audible to all but only a few with aesthetic sensibilities can enjoy and appreciate it.
Rain is bound to the different elements of nature - sea, land and sky.
As water vapours arise from the sea, to the poet, it appears as if the sea is emitting deep breaths while sighing. As the rain revitalises the greenery and freshens the vegetation - the land, particularly the fields seem to be laughing whole heartedly and since the rain drops fall from sky as tears fall from the eyes. the poet calls the rain the tears of heaven.
In the end, the rain wishes for the inhabitants of the world all affection, an inner joy and delightful recollections from the storehouse of sweet memories.
The poem is written in the first person, and rain itself is the speaker. It is described as something divine and characteristic of gods.
Rain is a divine gift of God and it proves very blessed for the dry and needy earth. One of the most divine manifestations of nature, it spreads joy and freshness all around. It beautifies, adorns and revive fields, trees, flowers and spreads life everywhere. Its droplets are like shimmering pearls and jewels from God’s crown. It gives joy in all forms, the thunder announces its arrival and the rainbow signifies its departure. Rain cements the relationship of love between the fields and the clouds. It takes birth from the depth of the sea, forms clouds and its cycle completes the full circle when it descends down in a million little ways. The arrival of the rain is like a welcome song, beating softly on the windows. All in all, rain has a multidimensional personality. It is born out of sighs, spreads laughter and descends like tears. It ties the earth and heaven in a spiritual bond, like a God, granting all wishes.
