Good rain know season
At spring be bring life
Follow wind secretly enter night
Moist thing soft without sound
Country road cloud all black
River boat fire alone bright
Dawn see red wet place
Flower heavy brocade government city
The good rain knows its season,
When spring arrives, it brings life.
It follows the wind secretly into the night,
And moistens all things softly, without sound.
On the country road, the clouds are all black,
On a riverboat, a single fire bright.
At dawn one sees this place now red and wet,
The flowers are heavy in the brocade city.
