restoring peace

a sudden pleasure after the hard rain
calm that arrives in stillness of the air
something that in the summer seems quite rare
the world's a better place when things are plain
this is not anything we can explain
it's never simple to just sit and stare
we have to understand and have to care
the world unites us in the heart of pain
seeing the changes and noting the scent
of air that's cleansed and freed of all constraint
we feel the need to say it's an advance
beyond the sentiment that it was meant
what we behold is fresh and free of taint
the gentle colours summon us to dance
