king of rain
REX (DOMINUS) IMBRUM


Explanation:
"IMBER" for "rain" evokes black ominous clouds and all sorts of Apocalyptic visions in the recipient-so if your poem is a bit Poe'ish. this version would be the most suiting one, I'd

Explanation:
hope it helps you. Good luck, Ian Ward!

"pluviosus; pluvius; nimbosus" mean 'rainy'.

\"erus / dominator / imperator\" are other versions of \'King\' if you need something different for rhythm.
So \"erus / dominator / imperator\" \"pluviosus; pluvius; nimbosus\"
Good luck in composing poems!
