Banana Pancakes  - Jack Johnson

You hardly even notice
When I try to show you this.
Song is meant to keep you
From doing what you're supposed to.
Like waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in.
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now.

And we could pretend it all the time.
Can't you see that it's just raining?
Ain't no need to go outside.

But just maybe, laka ukulele
Mommy made a baby.
I really don't mind the practice
'cause you're my little lady.
Lady, lady love me.
I love to lay here lazy.
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there's no world outside.

And we could pretend it all the time...

The telephone is singing
Ringing it's too early.
Don't pick it up.
We don't need to, we got everything
We need right here.
And everything we need is enough.
Just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms.
Don't really need to pay attention to the alarm.
Wake up slow, wake up slow.

In Time Of Silver Rain  by  Langston Hughes

1.Answers may vary
2.They are joyous instead of upset to see the rain-kissed nature all around them.
3.The earth “puts forth” life, flowers “lift” their heads, and leaves “sing” in joy.
4. Hughes tells his readers that situations always change, as the seasons do in a cycle throughout the year. Every winter is followed by a bountiful spring, and every sorrowful experience is followed by joy.
5.During winter, in the absence of nature’s scenic beauty, we forget that natural life exists all around us, but with the coming of springtime showers, when all such natural life is rejuvenated, we are both surprised and pleased to rediscover nature.
