WHAT a bit of sunshine

Glinting through the green:

While the raindrops patter

On his leafy screen.

Hidden in the maple

Just beyond my pane,

Merry, merry robin,

Singing in the rain!

When some trouble gathers

O'er me like a pall,

And about my pathway

Storms of sorrow fall,

Let the song that charmed me

Cheer me in my pain,

Till some friend shall hear me

Singing in the rain!
