Sparkling in the sunlight,
Dancing on the hills,
Tapping at my window,
Singing in the rills;
Comes the pleasant sun-shower
Like a glad surprise,
While I gaze with wonder
At the changeful skies.

Patter, patter, patter, patter,
Listen to the rain,
Patter, patter, patter, patter,
Spring has come again;
Patter, patter, patter, patter,
Hear the soft refrain,
Tapping, tapping, tapping, tapping,
On the window pane.

Clouds are flying swiftly,
Sunlight breaking thro’,
Every thing is shining
As with morning dew;
Falling on the mountain,
In the fertile plain,
Giving joy and gladness,
Comes the gentle rain.
