Seeds of Rain

by: Shirley Satterfield

Seeds of Rain ☔️

Sowing seeds of rain
In the silence of the sky.
Doing deeds of love with no outcry.
The children of the Lord
Are outlanders in the earth.
He who comes in last
Will someday come in first.

Sowing seeds of rain
In the silence of the sky.
The children of the Lord
Are those who out-lie
The majority of giant stars
That cluster on high.
