THE MONSOON


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! .

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
