A POEM ABOUT THE BEAUTY OF RAIN…

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

DID YOU EVER, EVER HEAR?

Did you ever, ever hear
The sound of summer rain?
Droplets on the shutters
And along the window panes?

Did you ever, ever listen
To the staccato dripping sound
As raindrops pitter-patter
On the cold autumnal ground?

And did you ever, ever drift off
To the plip-plop of a drop
As it slides and glides along the roof
Before it does a grand flip-flop?

No, there’s nothing like a rainstorm
Or those lovely winter showers,
For each drop’s a steadfast worker
That preps the ground for springtime flowers.

Cheryl Lodico

Yes, it is raining today, but I hope my poem showed you how lovely, rhythmic, relaxing and sweet the rain can be!
