The Monsoon - Poem by Oliver .........
Hail, rain, sweet rain, sleet and
Winds eastward, southward and,
Northward! see, gale-blown fig
Tree-dance! stay chair-fast, mick
O dear sleek cat feel big!
Rain-drain, rain-drain, rain-drain;
Drip-drop, drip-drop, drip-drop!
Sleek green, slick sheen! see, fig
Tree-prance! Sly cat, meek prig,
Leap down; brown cat, seek this!
Rain-drain, rain-drain, rain-drain
Drip- drop, drip-drop, drip-drop!
Peak-top gleam, slope-gleam and
Deep bourn! what mad rain at
Three-three! Rain-train chutes on
Steep knolls! Glee glee drops on
Roof-tops! wake now, fat mick,
O dear slick cat, too smug! .
