I assume that you mean the poem "In Time of Silver Rain" by Langston Hughes.  This is a simple poem that describes the beauty and joy of springtime.

Some of the images in this poem are:


 Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,


The butterflies
Lift silken wings


And trees put forth
New leaves


down the roadway
Passing boys and girls
Go singing

A couple of interesting notes about this poem:

The word "life" is repeated 5 times.

If you look at how the poem is printed on a page (or computer screen) each stanza looks a little bit like a tree (see link below).
