The Garden of Words (2013)


Pitter-a-patter, the rain comes a-falling,

The clouds congregate, and the wind begins squalling.

The sounds of the world are drowned out by the thunder,

As all creatures scurry for roofs to hide under.

As everyone must, the sky too does its weeping

And shares all its tears with the earth for safekeeping.

We patiently wait for the storm to blow through,

Then step out to witness a world washed anew.


MPAA rating: Not rated (could be PG but some language in the English dub bumps it to PG-13)
