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:

a)

 Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,


b)

The butterflies
Lift silken wings

c)

And trees put forth
New leaves

d)

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).
