Another Rescue

All night the rain pattered whispering,
weighting the foliage like snowfall
flattening tall grasses in herringbone 
bending lilac boughs to kiss the ground.
Young son ventures through the drops half-clad
to save the towering foxgloves spires
gently shaking each precious stalk
releasing a fresh and horizontal shower.
