old rain revisited

o you
tactical drencher, quencher,
with smoky-white sunshine never
too far from paternal descent of a cloud-tunnel near hill-blue,
not like the strategy of alien rain, death-rain
dripping to extinguish my motion-space,
tell every acid molecule
life henchman
that you are;
and
respite of earth-labour,
washer of leaves,
gilder of oranges,
polisher of trees,
drummer of rooftops,
wish and wire-wetter,
bow-builder,
eaveshummer,
dropper in the wind,
filler of birdsí baths on rubber tree leaves,
doleful donkey-dampener,
bearer of spout-gurgles,
and for playing children
drain-awakener,
gutter-chuckler,
culvert-alarum,
sun-crony,
rain:
I thirst.
