Newly Fallen Rain

Rating: 4.7

Raindrops glistening on tree leaves
Like diamonds in the sun,
Tiny little rivulets
Of water on the run,
Rain cascades from gutters like
A waterfall's begun,
Instant birdbaths for the birds,
They're having lots of fun.

As I listen to the steady
Drip and every drop,
I begin to wonder if
It's ever going to stop!
Trees are bending in the wind
Despite their soaking tops,
My poor balcony's a mess,
I'll have to get the mop!

Wonderfully penned observant poem about the aqueous downfall that forces us to hope that it will soon stop. I enjoyed the humorous ending. Thanks for posting. : -)

Nice poem! As a teenage poet I wrote a poem called " Damp Days" in which I complained about excessive rain.
