pitter-patter
Ted Hovey

The pitter-patter rhythmic sounds of rain
A lullaby to soothe your soul so deep
You sleep so sound, you dream, your strength regain

The harmony of sound on windowpane
Staccato quarter notes put you to sleep
The pitter-patter rhythmic sounds of rain

Percussion overhead, the roof's refrain
Helps you relax, your slide to peace so steep
You sleep so sound, you dream, your strength regain

The conscious mind of man cannot explain
How rain above can make your spirit leap
The pitter-patter rhythmic sounds of rain

For life, for body's rhythms to maintain
You thanked your God, and asked your soul He'd keep
You sleep so sound, you dream, your strength regain

When morning comes, you stir but still remain
To stay in reverie, to stay asleep
The pitter-patter rhythmic sounds of rain
To sleep so sound, to dream, your strength regain
