27 of 30 Rain

As a class we have been collecting a variety of words about rain to write a shared poem. All this talk - and a lot of rain this week - has inspired a quick rain poem.

"The words!  I collected them in all shapes and sizes and hung them like bangles in my mind."  Hortnese Calisher

Rain gently falls,
Bouncing off rooftops,
Dancing on pavement.
Leaves turn toward the sky
To quench their thirst.
Flowers bow in celebration.
Rain weaves it's way
Through cracks in the soil.
Roots stretch to catch
This gift from above.

  1. Oh, very nice. We had a little bit of that pitter-patter this week & loved it. It's so dry here this spring. I love your quote, Cathy.

  2. Love this and of course, the shape! A big fat raindrop! Plop!
