The Raindrop

Whilst pushing my way through the heavy grey sky
I pass clouds and birds that fly amazingly high,
with gathering speed I tumble in to a chestnut tree
from where I jump excitedly from leaf to leaf,
not much longer now before I come down with bounce
to rejoin the others that are already on the ground.

Luckily I didn't fall on to a rooftop with a splutter
to finish up in the dark drain and smelly gutter,
