Back into the Clouds

Rain, Rain, Rain,
Can be such a pain,
When playing football on the grass,
It makes it awfully hard to pass.

Rain can come in different forms,
From heavy thunder storms,
To a mere light shower,
But above the skies it will always tower.

But how is rain actually made?
Does it just come down like a cascade?
Or does it slowly, work its way above?
And then come shooting down like a dove?

But what happens is the water cycle,
Where the water always gets recycled,
But first it starts in a sea,
Then it evaporates to a degree,
But then the clouds move across the sky,
Until it reaches a mountain high,
And then it falls, onto the land,
Flows down rivers, strand by strand.
Finally it links up, back to the sea,
And then it repeats the long journey,
Back into the clouds.

    I thought that it was really good, like one of those watercolor paintings that you don't quite appreciate because you don't totally understand the specfic boundaries, but you like it because it looks beautiful. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
