April Rain Song

Rating: 3.5

the rain, it comes
down in so many ways
straight, slanted, hurried
or so slowly, lazily

it drizzles ever so slowly
- an old man trudging
through the lane -
throughout morn
until the pool is full

full, full, full with
my impatience to
visit nextdoor friend
for a round of noon football

rain April rain
it jumps in the garden
crystal upon crystal
to and fro
to and fro
down the big
yam leaves

Rain makes a soothing sound on old tin roofs. Your April poem makes me feel nostalgic. Lovely write, John. Warm regards, Sandra
