Rain is Falling II - Lightning


Rain, rain, feeling their game getting boring,
Rain, rain, together they form a new ring,
Rain, rain, hand in hand they sing,
Rain, rain, their claps bring forth lightning.
Rain, rain, their fun covers the Spring…

I can see rain racing down the lane,
So I ran,
Trying to catch the rain.

I can see lightning chasing after rain,
So I ran,
Trying to escape from lightning.

Rain and Lightning, an odd pair,
Lightning and rain, they mess up your hair,

Even though their game wets the terrain,
I know, there is always more to rain……

    Rain and lightning surely mess up your hair, but these lines contribute to the atmosphere of the poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
