Silence of rain

It's raining here! Not the kind you could sing in or dance
Almost like a mother's tears; Ignored by all and silently shed.

No single bird flies by to wipe the drops of tears that silently roll;
Not even the clouds nor winds to share; there stand the trees still and bare.

Could it be the sun that hides his face or was it the moon overnight;
Whoever caused such pain for the rain, please at once plead her mild.

Whatever happened to the joy she brings? Wherever went the child she thrives?
However hard I try to cheer; shuts down my mind on the silence of rain...

such picturesque comparison. True, that no bird flies when it rains.. and this soft rain compared to tears that aren't wiped.. wow..

Almost like a mother's tears; Ignored by all and silently shed

THat was a fascinating piece . It's great to notice the poet in you. And I also agree in full that the comparison to mother's tears was excellent.
Altogether the lines drew the picture of a day in early winter. Yes sometimes it feels that Nature is holding back!
