  • There is a solemn wind tonight
    That sings of solemn rain;
    The trees that have been quiet long
    Flutter and start again.

    The slender trees, the heavy trees,
    The fruit laden and proud.
    Lift up their branches to the wind
    That cries to them so loud.

    The little bushes and the plants
    Bow to the solemn sound
    And every tiniest blade of grass
    Shakes on the quiet ground.
